GP locums exposed to NHS pension cost-cutting

1st March 2010 by NASGP

We’ve received yet another email from a frustrated member:

I have just had my supperannuation cheque returned from [X] PCT as it is just over the 10 weeks, even though as pointed out to them i only got the paper work and cheque from the practice 1 week ago and the forms were dated so.

We wrote to the BMA 2 weeks ago (no reply yet) with this list of PCTs (as a result of our member survey) where locums have experienced problems submitting their payments where these PCTs have cited either the 10 week rule (locum form A) – or the 7 day rule (locum form B):

  • Berkshire West
  • West Sussex
  • East Sussex
  • Bury (Lancashire)
  • Surrey
  • Nottingham County
  • Hampshire
  • Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire
  • Kingston
  • Wandsworth
  • Croydon
  • Sutton & Merton
