The NHS Retirement Fellowship provides a bridge between life in the the NHS or social care services and your well earned retirement. If you want to keep up with your friends and make new friends with others who have worked in the  NHS and social care  and enjoy a variety of additional benefits and offers, then the NHS Retirement Fellowship may be for you!

The Fellowship helps make your retirement work for you and is a national charity of around 7,500 members with branches all over the country. And if there isn’t one that is really local to you, you can become a postal member, or even work with us to set up a new branch. Please get in touch with us at Central Office if you might be interested in helping to start a new branch

Activities and benefits include interest groups such as golf and photography, holidays, as well as access to a Benevolent Fund, and as a member of the NHS Retirement Fellowship you qualify for a number of benefits and discounts including very competitive insurance offers, retail and holiday discounts.  Check out benefits here: Members’ Benefits
