GP Pensions member events

NHS Pensions are hosting more GP member events to help members further understand the Scheme. Each session will be two hours long and there will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end of each session. ​​​​Presentations will be delivered on the following topics:

  • An overview of the different types of GPs and which certificates need to be completed.
  • A journey a GP can follow in multiple schemes and scenarios.
  • The process for a GP to follow when retiring.  

The event details are as follows:

Which GP certificate

This event will provide an overview of the different types of GPs and which certificates need to be completed. We are working on producing videos of each session which will be available to view on our website and YouTube channel. There will be a 20-to-30-minute presentation with a Q&A for anyone to ask questions.

There are currently no events on 'Which GP Certificate' but any that do become available will be added here.

Journey of a member

This event provides information on the journey a GP can follow in multiple schemes and scenarios. There will be a 45-to-60-minute presentation with a Q&A at the end.

There are currently no events on a 'Journey of a member' but any that do become available will be added here.

GP retirement

This event will cover the process for a GP to follow when retiring. There will be a 20-to-30-minute presentation with a Q&A at the end for people to ask any questions.

There are currently no events on 'GP retirement' but any that do become available will be added here.

The events are organised by our Stakeholder Engagement Team, and they are suitable for all NHS Pension Scheme Members.

Each webinar includes a presentation lasting approximately 40 mins followed by a Question-and-Answer session, during which you can ask questions. The team may not be able to answer any queries relating to your individual member record but will be able to advise on how to get more information. There's also an opportunity at the end of the sessions to give feedback on the event.

You'll need to register your place through Eventbrite. You may have some issues opening Eventbrite if you are using Internet Explorer. If so, try a different browser, such as Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome, or get in touch with the Stakeholder Engagement Team.

If you require additional support with any of the events or would like to find out more, email the Stakeholder Engagement Team at nhsbsa.pensionsevents@nhs.net

If you're unable to make the event you've registered for, we ask that you cancel the tickets on Eventbrite so people on the waiting list can use the spaces.
