NHS pensions consultation welcome but key groups must not be overlooked

11 September 2019

Responding to the government’s new NHS pensions consultation, the chief executive of NHS Providers, Chris Hopson said:

“It is good to see the government has recognised the importance of addressing the pensions issue as it affects senior clinicians, through this consultation. It is important that this is followed by decisive steps to ensure they are not penalised financially for carrying out much-needed work which makes a huge difference for so many patients.

“We have played a leading role in raising these concerns and we are pleased to see they are being addressed.

“However, we are worried that in tackling the concerns of senior clinicians, the continuing pensions difficulties for more junior staff and for NHS managers will be overlooked. It is vital that this does not happen, and we will continue highlight the damaging impact this could have.”
