Simon Stevens has a nerve… suggesting pensioners lose their annual inflation increase and lose their assets built up over lifetime of work – look in the mirror Simon. How about YOUR final salary pension????
How about YOU contribute by only taking out what you have put in over your working life?
Why isn’t anyone shining the spotlight on the devastating effect unfunded final salary and career average pensions are having on our NHS?
Many trusts are losing a third and rising of their budget, funding the shortfall in pensions.
If you want to retire Simon on two thirds of your salary, YOU should pay for it – not my children and grandchildren!
Pay our front line NHS staff much more while delivering their excellent service but ask them to save up for their own pension.
