Doctors' union wants pension allowances to be scrapped

Dr Nagpaul stated in the letter: "This option will not only result in doctors receiving a lower pension, but also does not remove the perverse incentive for doctors to reduce the work they do for the NHS. 

"This is particularly the case if there is no recycling of employers’ pension contributions back to the employees."

The letter to the Prime Minister acknowledges that she is in her final days in office but asks her to support the BMA by calling on the Chancellor to meet with the BMA and agree a definitive solution.
