Indemnity – paid for travel vaccinations no longer covered by CNSGP

We have been made aware of the following from GPC and ask practices to note that the CNSGP indemnity cover for paid for travel; vaccines will cease from 31st July 2019.

Indemnity – paid for travel vaccinations no longer covered by CNSGP
The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and NHS Resolution (NHSR) have confirmed a change in cover provided by CNSGP, with the supply and administration of paid for travel vaccinations no longer included. Previously the published scope of CNSGP included the supply and administration vaccinations where patients are directly charged. DHSC and NHS England have stated that this information was not correct and have apologised for this error.

DHSC and NHSE have committed to ensure that any general practice staff who were administering travel vaccinations and immunisations (where patients were charged a fee) and who understood themselves to be covered under the CNSGP for such activities, are not financially at a disadvantage as a result of any claim, or potential claim, against them as a consequence of relying on the incorrect information. In order to mitigate any risk to the health of patients, NHSR will provide assistance in relation to any claim for clinical negligence for the supply and administration of privately funded travel vaccinations for the period between 1 April and 31 July 2019.

General practice staff should contact NHSR to access support for such claims. Claims relating to the supply and administration of any travel vaccinations or immunisations (where the patient is required to pay) provided outside of this period should be reported to your medical defence organisation or indemnity provider.
