New NHS pensions

The new NHS Pension Scheme came into effect on 1 April across the UK. NHS staff will have received a reminder leaflet with their payslips in February with details of the new scheme.

NHS trade unions have provided input into a series of videos on the new scheme produced by NHS Pensions, alongside the Department of Health and NHS Employers.
