What is TRS?
TRS were introduced in the NHS during 2014 by NHSBSA in partnership with the NHS Electronic Staff Record Programme to support staff retention and motivation, by providing NHS staff with details on the overall value of their employment package. TRS are designed to help improve communications with employees, help them understand their complete benefits package and highlight the value of their employer and NHS Pension benefits in one place.
