New NHS pensions offer expected8th December 2011
Reports have suggested that the government is expected to announce a new offer on NHS pensions in a bid to help end the wider public sector pension dispute.
The Times newspaper reports that 630,000 lower-paid health service staff would be spared any rise in pension contributions next year while 700,000 higher-paid staff, including doctors and matrons, would pay hundreds of pounds extra. The move follows last week’s public sector strikes which saw workers walk out in protest at pension plans.
