Pensions and retention webinar

This webinar is for all those who want to know more about the upcoming NHS pension changes and  the national retention programme. 

This webinar will include:

  • The changes in April for pensions and the McCloud Judgement.
  • The RCM’s position on the shortage of midwives, flexible working and the need to retain experienced staff.
  • The national retention programme proactively monitors specific areas (e.g. health and wellbeing, morale) and risk groups (e.g. early and later career staff) and is layering in additional interventions. This allows the programme to respond flexibly and be targeted in our work to minimise the factors that impact on retention of NHS staff. The maternity programme work is a  targeted programme for retention to enhance midwives experience, improve staff engagement and further reduce leaver rates.
