Storm Barbara – Protecting your Business

The impending Storm Barbara has been the forefront of the news headlines the past few days, with the worst to be over the Christmas weekend. Here at MIAB we understand that every claim is unique and we work hard to make sure that every claim is handled appropriately.

Notifying of a claim can be daunting whether you are a first time claimant or even if you have made a claim before. That’s why we like to make the claims process as smooth and simple as possible. From notification to the final decision of the claim we are always on hand for guidance and updates.

Reducing GP pressure and adding value: pharmacists in general practice
Reducing GP pressure and adding value: pharmacists in general practice

The delivery of primary care services is in flux, reshaping and realigning to fit future needs, driven by the overarching aims of the Five Year Forward View. With new models of care being trialled or introduced, the integration of multiple services looks set to increase. 

Following a trial, NHS England indicated in the General Practice Forward View they intend to have 1500 more pharmacists working in general practice by 2020/21. To address the issue of clinical negligence protection, MIAB has designed a fit-for-purpose insurance policy aimed specifically at pharmacists in general practice.

Professional Indemnity Cover: MDOs v Insurance Policies
Professional Indemnity Cover: MDOs v Insurance Policies

Most healthcare professionals use one of three Medical Defence Organisations (MDOs) for their cover but not many know it is not compulsory to do so. 

In fact insurance-backed cover, which is the norm in most other countries in the world, is a perfectly acceptable alternative, and the fact that unlike MDO cover, protection is legally enforceable, has prompted more and more professionals to consider insurance-backed cover for specific areas such as Out of Hours. MIAB has written an overview of the differences between MDOs and insurance-backed cover.
