Pensions Consultation Information

The NHS is carrying out a consultation of staff on proposed changes to the NHS Pensions Scheme. South of the border, the consultation period is from 1st September until 30th November 2006.

In Scotland, though, this consultation runs from 3rd October 2006 until 5th January 2007.

This page links together some of the consultation documentation and Amicus publications on the proposals. Consultation papers are taken from both the Scottish Public Pensions Agency (SPPA) and NHS Employers websites. There are also links to other resources including a leaflet explaining exactly what a pension is.

The 2005 Consultation Papers are included for completeness, but are no longer under discussion.
