NHS Pension Comment

NHS Pension Comment

Representatives from 11 of the leading healthcare organisations in the UK - including the BMA and the RCGP - have written to Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, calling for a longer-term solution to the NHS Pensions issues being faced by doctors.
Ian Macvie, pension & retirement planning technical manager at Wesleyan, said:

"We welcome the signatories' call for a sustainable solution to the pensions crisis.

"At the heart of the issue for senior NHS staff is the tapered annual allowance, and we believe that any effective, long-term solution must see it scrapped without delay.

"Because of the current set-up, many senior clinicians have felt they have little choice but to turn down extra clinical work to reduce the risk of receiving a large tax bill. This has naturally had an impact on vital patient care.

"Abolishing the taper would enable clinicians to do the work that they need to, without the fear of being over-taxed, while helping to simplify what is already an overly-complicated system."
