Just how good is your NHS pension?

Just how good is your NHS pension?

Do you understand the benefits and true value of the NHS superannuation scheme for locum GPs?

Even if I had to pay the 14.5% employer’s contribution personally, I would join the scheme in an instant. In fact, I have threatened some GPs with being sectioned under the mental health act for not being members of the scheme, which I think is a sign of how good it is, irrespective of any changes and tax charges.

There is a potential issue with regards to locums and paying the correct tiered contributions, and once the superannuable income is reconciled at the end of the year, you can be asked for extra payments.

"A must-have for any GP locum.

I have used NASGP website since I started locuming three years ago. It caters for all my locum needs, and I found LocumDeck particularly useful for bookings and invoicing. The automatically-generated invoices and pension forms save me countless hours of admin time every month, and the recently introduced e-signed forms are brilliant.

The assistance I have received has always been quick and helpful. The forums and updates have also kept me in the loop with important issues which may affect my practice.

I cannot recommend this website enough. "
