Join UNISON NHS pension webinar to hear about the current NHS Scotland pensions consultation and how your pension contributions and pension benefits may be affected. UNISON Scotland head of health, Willie Duffy, will explain the changes, why they are being made, how they may affect you and how you will be able to participate in the SPPA consultation process.

You can register for the event at Eventbrite here.

UNISON Scotland is also conducting a survey to find out what information you would like from us, to gauge how much our members know about these changes and the NHS pension scheme, and what issues you would like us to raise directly with the Scottish Government and the SPPA. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey here.

We can only keep in touch with you if we know where you are. Contact your branch or use the links below to update online.
