Share your views on public sector exit payments


NHS Employers is gathering employer views on the HM Treasury consultation setting out how caps on public sector exit payments will be introduced.

The proposal, first announced by the Chancellor in 2015, means exit payments, including redundancy payments and pension top up payments, will be capped at £95,000.

The government is asking for comment on the draft regulations, which set out:

  • the proposed method of implementing the cap
  • the bodies which will be affected (which include the NHS in England and Wales)
  • the types of payments intended to be subject to the cap (which includes any payments which involve a cost to the employer, with some exceptions).

The ‘claw-back’ element of the original proposals, which would involve taking money back from public sector workers who subsequently become re-employed in the public sector, is not included in these regulations and is not being consulted on currently.

The target audience for this survey is NHS workforce directors who are responding on behalf of their organisation. If you wish you make an individual response you can do so on the government website

Please share your views before 21 June.
