NHS England Guidance - Changes to Medical Contract Holders

Publication date: October 2021

NHS England and NHS Improvement (NE and Yorkshire) have recently updated this guidance relating to changes of contract-holders to make it explicit that practices need to tell them in advance of a proposed “24-hour”/”technical” retirement.

This is necessary because the pensions agency, in advance of processing an application for payment of pension, asks NHSE to confirm that the (usually GP) partner did indeed retire from the practice’s contract for the requisite period. 

In the case of a contract held by a single GP, NHSE need to have plenty of advance notice because important steps have to be taken to ensure that there is a contract for them to return to.
