Petition Maintaining a fair and sustainable NHS pension scheme

We urge the Department of Health, in conjunction with the governments of the devolved nations, to reopen meaningful negotiations with health unions to achieve a fair and amicable settlement on the future of the NHS pension scheme.

The NHS pension scheme is not an unfair burden on taxpayers – in fact, it is currently providing a large positive cashflow to the Treasury. The settlement should reflect the fact that the NHS scheme underwent major changes only four years ago, with staff taking on responsibility for ensuring it is sustainable in the long term.
