[225] #LMCConf | Fix the death-in-service locum loophole

#LMCConf

225 LIVERPOOL: That conference believes that the current pension arrangements for GPs are discriminatory against GP locums and calls upon the GPC to enter into discussion with the NHS Pensions Agency to ensure that the families of GP locums do not lose out from the death in service benefit purely because of death occurring between two different locum jobs.

GP locums pay the same for their NHS pension, but their families could lose out significantly should they die at an inconvenient time.
