The NHS pension scheme is still one of the most generous and comprehensive in the UK. When you start working for the NHS you automatically become a member and you will get an excellent package of pension benefits.
You can expect your contribution to start at around 4-5% of your salary. The Trust will make a 14% contribution to your pension.
