Ministers have unveiled a major overhaul of the NHS pension scheme to try to stop doctors cutting their hours in order to avoid falling into a “tax trap” that means they face bills for as much as £100,000.

Matt Hancock, the health secretary, said the changes meant “every senior clinician will be able to carry out life-saving work for patients, safe in the knowledge they have more control over their pension, their future and their retirement than at any point in NHS history.”
