​NHS apologises as payments delayed due to rising retiree numbers


I have now had a letter that because of the backlog my benefits were authorised after the 5 April deadline and according to HMRC the LTA of £1,000,000 applies, not £ 1,250,000 as before. This is costing me about £30,000 in LTA charge. This is a scandal. I would be interested to hear from other affected parties.
