GPs can be held to account for their actions in many situations other than being sued, NHS performance investigations being one of them. It is therefore vital that you have access to expert help to anticipate professional challenges and limit the potential damage to your career and reputation.
While the new state-backed indemnity schemes for GPs in England and Wales will provide support with clinical negligence claims in many (although not all) cases, they won’t provide this type of support or advice. In order to safeguard your career, you need to have professional protection alongside state indemnity. That’s where we come in.
We’re at the end of the phone whenever you need us and can help with a wide range of situations where you face professional scrutiny. This includes complaints, disciplinary proceedings, coroner’s inquests, police matters and GMC investigations. In addition to this, our medicolegal advice line provides assistance on a wide range of medicolegal and ethical matters that clinicians face on a daily basis.
Our expertise means we can put your welfare first. We are best placed to provide emotional support, anticipate challenges, help you explain your actions and demonstrate insight, all of which can all lead to better outcomes.
