Royal College of Physicians welcomes NHS England pensions solution

RCP president, Professor Andrew Goddard, responds to NHS England’s in-year solution to the current pension tax charges issue.

Responding to NHS England’s short-term pensions fix, Professor Andrew Goddard, president of the Royal College of Physicians, said:

“This is fantastic news and means that clinicians can finally deliver the best patient care without having to worry about the impact of punitive pension taxes.

“We know that NHS England have worked hard to resolve a problem not of their own making. It is a much needed in-year short-term fix.

“The gauntlet has now been thrown down to whoever wins the general election, to find a long-term solution that will ensure those in the later stages of their medical careers know that they are valued.”
