Request Summary: NHS pension tax charges and measures taken to mitigate the impact on senior staff

Request Category: Media

 
Question Number 1:
Please can the trust outline any specific measures it has taken or is considering taking to mitigate the impact of pension tax charges on senior staff, which are causing some staff to reduce their hours or in some cases retire.
The issues are summarised in this recent report from NHS Employers:
https://www.nhsemployers.org/case-studies-and-resources/2019/06/research-into-the-impact-of-pensions-tax-in-the-nhs
 
Answer To Question 1:
The Trust is considering all options available at the moment. In the interim the Trust has provided some external expertise to ensure a wider understanding of the tax implications.

The Trust at this stage hasn’t actually put in place any mitigating actions and is waiting for the national consultation to see next steps
