Members entitled to fees for domiciliary consultations

This section has no associated Executive Note

R6.—(1) This regulation applies to members who, as medical or dental officers, have received fees from an employing authority in respect of domiciliary consultations.

(2) Any fees received in respect of domiciliary consultations will be included in the member’s pensionable pay for the purposes of regulation D1 (contributions by members).

(3) Any fees in respect of domiciliary consultations that are included in the member’s pensionable pay for the purposes of regulation D1 will also be included in the member’s pensionable pay for the purpose of deciding the year by reference to which final year’s pensionable pay is to be calculated, but the member’s final year’s pensionable pay will then be reduced by the amount of any fees received in respect of domiciliary consultations during that year.

(4) If the member’s final year’s pensionable pay is reduced as described in paragraph (3), a supplementary benefit will be payable with each benefit that is payable to, or in respect of, the member under this Section of the scheme.

(5) Subject to paragraph (6), each supplementary benefit that is payable in accordance with paragraph (4) will be calculated in the same way as the benefit that it supplements as if the amount of the fees received in respect of domiciliary consultations during the year by reference to which final year’s pensionable pay is calculated were the member’s final year’s pensionable pay.

(6) Any supplementary benefit will be based on the same pensionable service as the benefit that it supplements, except that—

(a)any period of additional service bought as described in regulation Q1 (right to buy additional service) will be ignored;

(b)any additional period of service credited to the member by virtue of paragraph (5)(a) of regulation R3 (mental health officers) will be ignored;

(c)any period of pensionable service in respect of part-time employment will count at its full length and will not be reduced to its whole-time equivalent as described in regulations C4(2) and C4(3) (pensionable service in respect of part-time employment);

(d)the member’s pensionable service will include any period of additional service credited to the member under regulation 5 of the National Health Service (Compensation for Premature Retirement) (Scotland) Regulations 2003(1) (crediting of additional period of service); and

(e)any period of pensionable service calculated as described in regulation 37(7) of the 1980 Regulations (calculation of pensionable service in respect of part-time employment before 15th December 1966) will be ignored.

(7) Except as described in paragraph (8), if the member exercises a right to buy additional service under regulation Q1 or unreduced retirement lump sum under regulation Q2, the amount of any fees received from an employing authority in respect of domiciliary consultations will not be included in the member’s pensionable pay for the purpose of calculating the cost of the additional service or unreduced retirement lump sums.

(8) If the member exercises a right to buy an unreduced retirement lump sum under regulation Q2—

(a)any fees received during the last financial year to end before the member elects to buy an unreduced retirement lump sum will be included in the member’s remuneration for the purpose of calculating the amount payable under regulation Q4(3) (paying for an unreduced retirement lump sum by single payment); and

(b)any fees received while the member is paying for an unreduced retirement lump sum by regular additional contributions will be included in the member’s pensionable pay for the purposes of regulation Q5(5) (paying by regular additional contributions).

(9) If the member returns to NHS employment after becoming entitled to receive a pension the member’s final year’s pensionable pay will include, for the purposes of calculating previous pay under regulation S2 (reduction of pension where member returns to NHS employment after becoming entitled to receive pension), the amount of any fees received in respect of domiciliary consultations during the year by reference to which final year’s pensionable pay is calculated.

(10) For the purposes of paragraph (9), “NHS employment” means the same as in regulation S1(5).

(1)

S.S.I. 2003/344; regulation 5 was amended by S.S.I. 2005/512 and 2006/561.
