Pension tax rules

I am a GP who will be 61 at the end of this month when I will take 24-hour retirement. I intend to finally retire at 65 and I would like to use my employee and employer superannuation contributions for two years from 1 June 2009 to pay into a stakeholder pension scheme. Could I rejoin the new NHS pension scheme (NHSPS) in June 2011 and use the stake-holder pension accrued towards the cost of an additional £5,000 a year NHS pension? My earnings fluctuate but are in the region of £150,000 a year and I wonder how my plan will be affected by the new rules on pension tax allowances.
