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:
- fees, and
- other regular payments
made to the member in respect of their employment.
However, this does not include:
- overtime, or
- pay awards/increases
which are expressed by the secretary of state to be non-consolidated.
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.
