  can retire earlier (see Chapter 4).
2 A small group of National Health Service (NHS) staff (now closed to new entrants)
  has the right to retire at 55.
3 Under the old scheme, some employees still had the right to retire from 60 if they had
  attained sufficient length of service under Rule of 85 terms.
