    What are you looking to do? Don't forget that as NHS pensions is an unfunded scheme, you can't transfer your benefits to a private pension plan, so you are limited to leaving it where it is or transferring it to another public sector defined benefit scheme.

    The NHS pension is not specialist and any IFA should have no problems providing advice relating to it. As you cant transfer out of the NHS scheme, there is no pension specialist requirement.
    I am an Independent Financial Adviser (IFA). Comments are for discussion purposes only. They are not financial advice. If you feel an area discussed may be relevant to you, then please seek advice from an Independent Financial Adviser local to you.

    If you're in a union they are likely to have an expert who can give you advice.

    What advice do you need?

    You cant transfer it, you can opt out if it (which would be an extremely silly idea).
