Payments for Clinical Director duties

We have recently received a number of queries in relation to clinical director duty payments.

The regulations state that a member’s pensionable earnings are:

  • salary
  • wages
  • fees, and
  • other regular payments

made to the member in respect of their employment.

However, this does not include:

  • bonuses
  • expenses
  • overtime, or
  • pay awards/increases

which are expressed by the secretary of state to be non-consolidated.

The regulations are available online.

Therefore if the director is receiving a regular increase of wages for extra responsibilities, this would form part of the member’s pensionable pay and must be included in all pensionable pay calculations.
