Document Are domiciliary visit fees or domiciliary consultation fees pensionable?

Domiciliary consultation fees - sometimes referred to as Domiciliary Visit or DV Fees -  are paid when the patient cannot attend hospital on medical grounds and therefore must be visited in their own home.
They are classed as pensionable pay. Scheme contributions (including contributions in respect of Additional Pension, ERRBO and Unreduced Lump Sum Retiring Allowance) should be collected on them in the normal way, with the exception Added Years contracts.  If the member has an active Added Years contract these should not be taken from any DV Fees.
They are only paid to doctors (excluding GPs) and should not be included in the normal total pensionable pay figure on form AW8, but shown separately.
For more information, please see the NHS Pensions website.
