National Health Service Pension Scheme (Amendment) Regulations 2009 come into force

Implementation date: 1 July 2009

The Regulations ensure that NHS staff who are seconded to non-NHS organisations for the purpose of performing duties that have been transferred to that organisation (known as the “retention of employment” model) may only continue to be members of the NHS Pension Scheme in circumstances where the Secretary of State for Health considers that appropriate. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
