NHS Pensions in England and Scotland

Q: I have just received my pension entitlement details from the NHS pensions people in England. This states that I started NHS work in February 1981. But I qualified in Glasgow and worked there for 2.5 years before working in England. I had not realised NHS pensions in England and Scotland were two separate bodies. I contacted the latter and after some correspondence by telephone and post, I have been offered a refund. However, the Scotland scheme is adamant the 2.5 years cannot be transferred. Is this correct? If not, can I claim a second NHS pension based on the years I worked in Scotland?
