Subscription rates are calculated based on your specific needs. This means we will provide you with an individual tailored quote based on the amount and nature of work you do.
A Professional Protection membership subscription is based on your role (GP, salaried GP, partner, locum, nurse or other healthcare professional), the number of sessions or hours you work and whether you undertake any higher risk activities.
Certain activities within general practice carry higher risk than others, such as out of hours work, minor surgery or tele-consultations. When we changed your membership to Professional Protection, we have assumed you undertake standard GP activities. However, if you undertake higher risk activities, these should be declared when checking your membership details, to ensure you have adequate indemnity.
The list below details the roles and activities we have identified as being higher risk:
