Ashley works within our dedicated NHS Pension Management team liaising with the NHS Pension Agency and administrating NHS Pension Reports utilising our bespoke financial model. There is a whole new level of complexity surrounding the NHS Pension Scheme and the new rules on Annual Allowances and Lifetime Allowances mean that healthcare professionals' pensions are at risk of extremely penal tax charges. Our NHS Pension Management Service is arguably unrivalled nationally and Ashley supports a client portfolio of GP Partners, Locums, Hospital Doctors, Consultants, Chief Executives and management teams of NHS Trusts.
