Pension Choice? Career and retirement options for the NHS


29 / 10 / 2009

This briefing is for boards and human resource directors in NHS organisations in England.  It covers the strategic issues and potential risks for boards in relation to the NHS Pension Choice exercise. The NHS Pension Choice exercise begins in January 2010, giving members of the 1995 section of the NHS Pension Scheme the opportunity to move to the new 2008 section. As part of the exercise, every employer will need to engage with staff of all ages about career and retirement planning. This briefing outlines how good employment practice during the Choice exercise will help organisations to support staff, retain skills and prepare for the future.

The briefing is supported by two PowerPoint presentations:

  • Understanding the strategic aspects of the Pension Choice exercise
    This presentation, which includes speaker notes, may be used by any NHS organisation as part of raising awareness and in preparation for the NHS Pensions Choice exercise. It has been designed to be used as part of internal briefings for NHS boards or Choice project teams.  
  • Ideas for Pension Choice project teams
    This presentation contains ideas and suggestions for project management teams about the action that can be taken locally during the NHS Pension Choice exercise to ensure that strategic aims are achieved.
