The Government has been covertly capping GPs’ pensions


Jaimie, this is in effect what is happening. Those (full-time GP) that saw the bus coming stepped out of the road and out of the scheme when they got to 50. Those that didn't are paying for their inattention. What you don't say is what a betrayal of trust this is. We agreed to work for 40 years and put up with the nights, the OOH, the appraisals, and all the bullying and mistreatment in return for a promise and understanding of a decent pension at the end. We're 30 years in, and the final pension has been capped from a projected £60K to £40K effectively - that's a reduction of £500,000 projected pension income for those of us that don't drop dead from burn-out. No wonder that we're all walking
