Document Can Mental Health Officer be backdated for part time members?

Mental Health Officer (MHO) status used to apply to whole time members alone. However part-time members can now be granted MHO status as long as they fulfill the other criteria. MHO status can be backdated for part time membership to 8 April 1976 for those who were in NHS employment and a contributing member of the Scheme on 14 January 1999.

Those who were not in NHS employment and a scheme member on 14 January 1999 but who subsequently rejoined the scheme after that date are entitled to have MHO status considered for current and future periods of part-time membership subject to fulfilling the other criteria.

For more information please see the Mental Health Officer (MHO) factsheet on our website.
