State Backed Indemnity Scheme (April 2019): GPC Guidance

As part of the GP contract negotiations for 2019/20 , GPC England secured a state-backed indemnity scheme to cover clinical negligence for all GPs and staff working in NHS GP providers, both in and out of hours, for NHS work, from April 2019. Run by NHS Resolution, this will come at no direct cost to practices or GPs, and will mean no longer pay spiralling subscriptions.

GPs will still need MDO cover for GMC representation, private work etc but the cost of this will be significantly less than current subscriptions.

GPs and practices will need to consider the impact of this on themselves and others in the practice – click HERE for the detailed guidance.
