Over half of GP partners would go salaried 'if offered the right deal'


27 Jun 2016 10:56am - key words - 'at present'. In theory you could outsource all your staff to an LLP/Ltd and transfer them under direction body status to keep them in the NHS pension, but prevent future staff from having it - creating a cost saving and reducing your risk. If you hold an APMS contract you can have NHSP and be either an LLP or a Ltd, and can then sell that body - essentially crystalising the goodwill. I fully expect the new 'voluntary contract' will allow a body corporate to hold the contract as per APMS, and therefore both of these will be resolved. Look carefully at the Pets@Home and SpecSavers models - this is where we are going.
