NHS staff get pension and budget reassurance

7th November 2008

NHS staff have been reassured by health secretary Alan Johnson that the economic crisis would not affect budgets or pensions for at least three years.

However, speaking via a video link to the NHS Employers annual conference in Birmingham, he has warned that careful planning was required for the next five years and said that the government would not renege on NHS pensions, salaries or budgets or claw back deficits from PCTs. He also said 125 new GP surgeries in under-doctored areas would help reduce the health impact of recession.
