This training will have intensive information sharing plus a significant amount of group work to maximise the practical learning elements of the sessions. It is ideal for those who administer the pension scheme or who have responsibility for ensuring it is correctly administered. Remember: Outsourcing does NOT remove the practice's legal responsibility.


The aim is to provide an overview of the NHS Pension Scheme (inc the 1995, 2008 and 2015 sections). We will be looking at:

  • Employer responsibilities (inc end of year reporting)
  • Pension administration basis (inc common errors and their effect on retirement benefits)
  • Potential consequences of incorrect administration
  • Retirement options (inc ‘Retire & Return’ and ‘Drawdown’)
  • Processing retirement applications
  • The implications of McCloud and final pay controls
  • The NHS Pension as a potential tool for increasing staff retention in general practice
  • Staying up to date with pension changes


The objective is to provide you with the necessary information and materials to help you administer the pension scheme in your practice correctly.
