Commenting on NHS England’s announcement on the Winter Indemnity Scheme, Rob Hendry, Medical Director at Medical Protection, said:

“The NHS Winter Indemnity Scheme has played an important role in enabling a well-staffed and flexible workforce during the difficult winter months; we are pleased to see the scheme being rolled out again this year. We know the additional funding will be welcome news for GPs.

“GPs are keen to understand more about the Government’s long term approach. With little more than six months to go before the new state-backed indemnity scheme is due to be launched, we are continuing to press Government for more detail on their plans. It is vital that GPs maintain their medical defence membership until the state-backed indemnity scheme is up and running to ensure they have continuous cover against any claims now or in the future.”

ENDS
