Can I pension my work as an appraiser, even though I’m a locum?

Freelance GP locums who are also appraisers will now be able to superannuate their appraisal income.

This means that it will now in effect cost NHS England (or LHBs in Wales) £570.00 per appraisal. The core pensionable fee (excluding employer contributions) will be £500.00 regardless of what type of GP is performing them. GP locum forms A & B will be revamped to provide guidance and of course a freelance GP locum has the flexibility of not ‘pensioning’ their income if they don’t want to.

  1. Is this new? Previously as a locum Appraiser I have only been able to pension 90% of my £500 fee. Thanks
