nhs scheme 2015As you may be aware, new pension arrangements are to be introduced for public sector pension schemes from April 2015.

The main features of the new NHS Pension Scheme design in Scotland from 2015 have been set out within the Framework Document.

A number of frequently asked questions (FAQ's) have also been produced to aid understanding of these changes and are available below. 

At present only limited information is known about the exact details of the new NHS pension scheme arrangements. As the new rules are developed these will be discussed and agreed in partnership between NHS Trade Unions, NHS Employers, Scottish Government & SPPA representatives via the Scottish NHS Pensions Group (SPG).

More information / FAQs will be added to these webpages in due course.

Please do not attempt to contact SPPA currently as we are unable to provide any further clarification at this time to what has already been published above.
