Hancock in discussions with Treasury about changing GP pension tax rules


The answer is to opt out of the NHS pension and do your own. Not a great propspecf but at least you escape the NHS pension ball and chain and youre free of the continuous screwing around with your retirment prospects. You are then genuinely free to work for who you like and can’t be forced to accept crappy working conditions simply fo maintain a presence in the increasingly toxic pension scheme. When you leave you freeze all the benefits you had up until that point, which is worth something at least, and you gain freedoms which shouldn’t be written off out of hand.
