The article reports on the change for rules forbidding private firms from offering National Health Service (NHS) pensions to directly employed medical staff urged by private companies in Great Britain. They are lobbying prime ministers to allow them to offer NHS pensions to general practitioners (GPs) at Darzi centres and Alternative Provider Medical Services (APMS) practices. The move would strengthen incentives for doctors to work at private firms.
