NHS Employers provides support and guidance to help employers deliver the NHS Pension Scheme effectively for their organisation. The NHS Pension Scheme continues to be one of the most comprehensive and generous schemes within the UK. It is a key element of the overall reward package for staff and can be a valuable tool for recruitment and retention. Employers play a vital role in administering the scheme at a local level, communicating with staff and taking advantage of the benefits that the scheme can bring at an organisational level, such as utilising the flexibilities.
For further information about how the NHS Pension Scheme will be affected by COVID-19, please see the guidance in our dedicated web section.
