This guidance is about staff who have taken their NHS pension scheme (NHSPS) benefits and who now wish to return to work for the NHS. This is sometimes called ‘retire and return’.

The guidance aims to help employers put in place policies and procedures so that decisions to re-employ staff can be justified in terms of service need and value for money.
