Medigold are independent medical advisors used by NHS Pensions.

They’re specially trained Occupational Health physicians.

The role of the medical advisors is to assess an applicant’s capacity or incapacity for work against the tightly prescribed rules of the Scheme’s regulations.

Occupational physicians are experts in seeking, evaluating and using the evidence of clinical specialists to assess the functional consequence of an applicant’s medical condition and how that change in function impacts on their capacity or incapacity for work.

The Scheme's medical advisors carry out this assessment of the medical evidence and offer a recommendation to us.

They can also commission further medical evidence if they consider it relevant and helpful to their assessment.

If you need an update on the progress of your ill health application, you must contact Medigold directly.
