Calculating pensionable earnings of medical practitioners in partnership
This section has no associated Policy Notes

3.A.9.—(1) In the case of principal practitioners practising in partnership (with or without a non-GP provider who is a partner in a partnership), the pensionable earnings of each principal practitioner and non-GP provider who is a partner in a partnership is calculated by aggregating the pensionable earnings of each (including for this purpose, any amount that would constitute pensionable earnings in the case of any of them who are not included in this Section of the scheme) and, subject to paragraph (2), dividing the total equally by reference to the number of such partners.

(2) If the principal practitioners and any non-GP providers who are partners in a partnership do not share equally in the partnership profits, they may elect that each partner’s pensionable earnings correspond to each partner’s share of the partnership profits.

(3) If a registered medical practitioner(1) practising in partnership also has earnings in respect of NHS employment otherwise than as a practitioner (under Part 2), the partners may elect that the pensionable earnings of that practitioner, as determined in accordance with paragraph (1) or (2), must be reduced by the amount of those earnings and the pensionable earnings of each of them (including that practitioner) be then increased in proportion to their respective shares of the partnership profits.

(4) The calculations described in paragraphs (2) and (3) are to be made by the Health Board or someone appointed on its behalf to whom the partners are required to give notice of their election in accordance with regulation 3.A.10(1) (elections relating to calculation of pensionable earnings in medical partnerships).

(1)

“Registered medical practitioner” is defined in Schedule 1 to the Interpretation Act 1978 (c.30), as amended by S.I. 2002/3135.
