GPs in Scotland win new pension deal

GPs in Scotland have earned the same pensions deal as colleagues in England and Wales.

This means that:
•    Pensions will be based on final salaries
•    GPs keep career average pension schemes
•    GPs currently working retain the right to retire at 60 on a full pension
•    GPs starting after 1 April 2008 will have a normal pension age of 65, with the right to take a pension after the age of 55.

GPs in Northern Ireland have yet to learn their new pensions deal.
