In the next few days the Society will finalise preparations for our membership consultation via an individual postal ballot to take place on 12 April.
We will also be producing a fresh set of FAQs and a short briefing to explain the proposals.
For clarity, this is a proposed agreement. Nothing has been agreed by the CSP, until CSP members in the NHS and associated social enterprise companies have had their say.
These final proposals only apply to England and Wales.
In Scotland the health minister Nicola Sturgeon is due to meet trade unions later in the month to discuss the NHS Pension Scheme for staff in Scotland.
We are still awaiting a government statement from Northern Ireland.
Please find below a statement from the health unions and a link to the Proposed Final Agreement.
