State Backed Indemnity Scheme For General Practice
On 12 October 2017 the Secretary of State for Health has announced that the Department of Health is planning the development of a state-backed indemnity scheme for general practice in England, subject to further work on relevant issues.
It is likely to take 12-18 months to develop. In the meantime, GPs should continue to ensure they have appropriate indemnity cover in line with GMC requirements to enable them to practise.
It is envisaged the scheme would provide clinical negligence cover to providers of GP services (e.g. GP contractors OOH providers of GP services) through which the activities of individual GPs would be covered. It would be available to all contractors who provide primary medical services: GMS, PMS and APMS plus any other integrated urgent care delivered through NHS Standard Contracts. The cover would include the activities of practice staff including other medical professionals working for the practice in the provision of these contracted services, and students/trainees working in this area.
