GP winter indemnity scheme repeated in 2017
Posted on 06 October 2017
The scheme is designed to meet the costs of personal professional indemnity insurance for any additional out-of-hours work undertaken by GPs this winter, enabling GPs freedom to work extra sessions without having to pay additional subscriptions to a medical defence organisation (MDO).
This is the third year that NHS England has run this winter pressures indemnity scheme, which last year secured an additional 80,000 sessions of GP cover in out-of-hours and unscheduled care.
A large number of providers have already signed up to this scheme in anticipation of their additional staffing requirements.
This is an ideal opportunity for you to help your local out-of-hours provider at no extra cost to yourself.
