'I'll act as test case'

Dr Eric Rose is willing to act as

a test case in the legal fight

against the pensions cap.

Dr Rose, who started drawing his pension in April at the age of 62, estimates he would have to work into his 80s to recoup the £100,000 he stands to lose.

He said: 'I'm absolutely devastated. I worked 37 years in the NHS and during that time I've given an enormous amount to it.

'To be kicked in the teeth

like this makes me not want to

co-operate with anything at all.'

The BMA has said it will support an individual GP's case as part of its campaign to overturn the cap.

Dr Rose, a GP in Milton Keynes and GPC member, said his losses amounted to two years of unclaimed pension plus his personal superannuation and employers' contributions.
