PCNS – Online Registration to Access Practice Number Data 2021-05-02T19:51:51+00:00

Online Registration to Access PCN Data


IMPORTANT NOTICE: To gain access to new services and search PCN data, all healthcare funding organisations must re-register on the PCNS 2.0 website at https://www.pcns.co.za.

As of 1 April 2020, companies no longer need to contact the PCN division at BHF in order to gain access to healthcare service providers’ practice number data.

With PCNS 2.0, everything has been streamlined and user account registration can quickly be done online, with account approval within 24-hours during business days for all new user registrations.

Existing users should also reset browser bookmarks to the new URL – https://www.pcns.co.za – thereby ensuring they don’t access the old system by default. Both new and old systems will be running in parallel for a short period, in order to ease the transition to PCNS 2.0.
