Although the NHS pension scheme is complex, the benefits are still seen as excellent. So it’s worth taking a little time to understand it and get the paperwork right – and we’re here to help.
When we set up the NASGP in 1997, GP locums weren’t entitled to contribute to the NHS pension scheme, so our first priority was to lobby the BMA to change that. Since then, we’ve developed a range of advice, support and resources to help you benefit from the scheme with the minimum effort.
Of course, your pension is extremely important to you, so you should also seek expert advice from an independent financial advisor.
