The department consulted on the first set of amendments to implement the McCloud judgment in December 2021 and now welcomes views from interested parties on the second set of draft amendments to HSC Pension Schemes Regulations.
This consultation document sets out the proposals of the second set of draft regulations which introduce the retrospective part of the McCloud Remedy through the Health and Social Care Pension Schemes (Remediable Service) (Northern Ireland) Regulations 2023. The draft regulations should allow eligible HSC Pension Scheme Members to make a retrospective choice which will put them, as far as possible, in the pension position they would have been in had the discrimination not occurred.
This consultation will run from 07 April 2023 until 30 June 2023.

Proposed changes to HSC Pension Scheme Regulations. The Health and Social Care Pension Schemes (Remediable Service) (Northern Ireland) Regulations 2023.
