Leaked NHS memo warns pensions errors may affect 'large proportion of GPs'


I think youcan defer membership which means you stop paying in and then draw the pension on retirement. You lose the tax relief and in service benefits are not as generous so it is recommended to take specialist advice according to BMA. See their pension website and the section on NHSBA “deferring my membership” on the pension page.
