Winter indemnity scheme for GPs – 2016

Winter indemnity scheme for GPs – 2016

As part of a broader General Practice Forward View commitment to address the issue of rising indemnity costs, NHS England’s 2016 winter indemnity scheme for GPs was due to run until Friday 31 March 2017 (inclusive) however this has now been extended to run until Sunday 30 April 2017. It is designed to meet the costs of personal professional indemnity for any additional out of hours work undertaken by GPs this winter to enable the freedom to work additional sessions without having to pay additional subscriptions to their medical defence organisation (MDO).

If you are a GP who would be interested in accessing the scheme, we would ask you initially make contact with your local out of hours (OOH) or unscheduled care (USC) provider to check what extra sessions are available to work and whether individual cover will be required. OOHs / USC providers include all those services providing clinical care to patients other than to registered patients of that practice where limited or no access is available to the patients care records. This can include services provided by NHS 111, integrated urgent care services and unscheduled care sessions in traditional general practice settings.
