3 Medical Money Management Why was the Cost/Notional Rent Scheme Introduced? MMM

4 Medical Money Management Why was the Cost/Notional Rent Scheme Introduced? Answer: Because it saves the Government a lot of money! MMM

5 COST RENT IS: Approved Costs x Prescribed Percentage

6 COST RENT IS: The rental paid by the PCT to the Practice for the use of the DOCTORS SURGERY, thereby allowing the PCTs Patients to be treated

7 NOTIONAL RENT IS: The current Market Rent assessed by the District Valuer based on the Alternative use VALUE OF THE DOCTORS SURGERY.

8 NOTIONAL RENT IS: The rental paid by the PCT to the Practice for the use of the DOCTORS SURGERY, thereby allowing the PCTs Patients to be treated

9 COST/NOTIONAL RENT Continues for as long as the building is used to treat the PCTs Patients MMM

10 COST/NOTIONAL RENT Providing the Cost/Notional Rent is mostly sufficient to cover the interest on a loan, there is little financial consequence should a doctor Die Leave Retire From a Practice MMM

11 COST/NOTIONAL RENT The fact that most Doctors have to borrow money to build or buy into a Surgery is largely irrelevant to the payment of the Cost or Notional Rent. MMM

12 COST/NOTIONAL RENT Questions to ask? 1. When will I be expected to buy a share of the surgery premises? 2. How will the share be valued? 3. Is the Practice in receipt of Cost or Notional Rent? 4. Whichever – how much and when was the last triennial review? MMM

13 COST/NOTIONAL RENT Additional Details Required 1. Existing Loan Details: Amount Term Rate (Fixed or Variable) 2. Repayment Method 3. Security MMM

16 The NHS Pension Scheme (NHSPS)

17 AGENDA Summary of main scheme conditions and benefits. Retirement benefits: calculation Early retirement: the effect Maximum service Topping-up benefits -added years -AVCs Ill-health retirement Death benefits

18 CONTRIBUTIONS 6% personal contribution for both practitioners and officers. Income tax relief. Lower NI for salaried officers; contracted out Employing authority (e.g GP Surgery) - 4% contribution Remainder: Subsidised by DOH (Treasury) - not funded, pay-as-you-go. Effect?

19 NHSPS BENEFITS Tax free lump sum on retirement Inflation-proof pensions (normal, early, widows & dependants) - 60 onwards (55 special classes) Death in service gratuity: 2 x pensionable pay

20 CALCULATING PENSION BENEFITS Officers: accrual basis = 1/80th pension plus 3/80th TFC for each year of service general medical practitioner1.4% of total dynamised career NHS pensionableearnings for each year of service (pension); 3 times for cash

21 Worked example: Practitioner Practitioner joins NHSPS at age 24 Assume retirement at age 60 Assume dynamised career average is £ 42,000 pa Total (revalued) career earnings = £1,512,000 (36 years x £ 42,000) Pension = 1.4% x £1,512,000 = £21,168 pa Lump sum = 3 x £21,168 = £63,504

22 Worked example: Officer Officer joins NHS at age 25 Has 2 years break to carry out VSO work at the age of 35, then returns to NHS Assume retirement at age 60 Assume final earnings at retirement are £53,200 Total Service = 33 years Pension = 33/80ths x £53,200 = £21,945 pa Lump sum = 3 x £21,945 = £65,835

23 NHS PENSION SCHEME (EARLY RETIREMENT) Voluntary early NHS retirement from age 50 is possible, but NHS pension benefits reduced if taken prior to age 60 No reduction applies for ill health retirement, and dependants benefits based on unreduced pension

24 How does this affect the worked example? (practitioner) Practitioner had entered service at 24 Assume early (voluntary) retirement at 55 Therefore, only 31 years potential Assuming same career average (£42,000pa) total career earnings = £ 1,302,000 Pension = 1.4% x £ 1,302,000 x 75% = £13,671pa Lump sum = 3 x 1.4% x £ 1,302,000 x 86% = £47,028

25 How does this affect the worked example? (officer) Practitioner had entered service at 25 Assume early (voluntary) retirement at 57 Assuming same final earnings (£53,200pa) Only 30 years potential (2 year VSO break) Pension = 30/80th x £53,200 x 84% = £16,758pa Lump sum = 3 x 30/80th x £53,200 x 92% = £55,062

26 MAXIMUM SERVICE ALLOWED pensionable service may not exceed…. 40 years by age years by age 65 (different for special classes) service after age 70 does not count and benefits will be paid

27 FUNDING FOR MAXIMUM PENSION BENEFITS (practitioners / salaried NHS appointment) NHS EARNINGS-ADDED YEARS -AVCs -FSAVCs NON-NHS earnings -Personal Pension
