Link your PIP and WIP – Practice Stream practice details
You can link your Practice Incentives Program (PIP) and Workforce Incentive Program (WIP) – Practice Stream practice details.
If you’re applying for, or already participate in, both the PIP and the WIP - Practice Stream, you can link your practice details and become a PIP consenting practice.
This means that you consent to the following PIP information being used for the WIP - Practice Stream:
- practice name and main address
- eligibility details, such as accreditation, public liability insurance and indemnity insurance
- bank account details
- contact details
- location details
- ownership details
- general practitioner and nurse practitioner details
- your Standardised Whole Patient Equivalent (SWPE).
When you have become a PIP consenting practice, your Practice IDs will become identical. You’ll only need to update your practice details in your PIP profile. You won’t need to make the same updates to your WIP – Practice Stream profile.
How to become PIP consenting
Applying for the WIP – Practice Stream
If you’re applying for the WIP – Practice Stream:
- select Yes to consent to using the PIP practice information, and
- provide your approved PIP practice ID.
Please make sure the PIP data is correct when you’re going through the application. You can update your PIP data using PIP Online before you submit your WIP – Practice Stream application.
Already approved for the PIP and the WIP – Practice Stream
If your practice IDs don’t match, you are not registered as a PIP consenting practice.
To link them, an owner or authorised contact person must provide both practice IDs through a:
- written request on official company letterhead, or
- email firstname.lastname@example.org and include both practice ID numbers.
Information on practice eligibility, program requirements and impacts on practice SWPE is available in the Workforce Incentive Program Guidelines on the Department of Health website.
