State-backed Indemnity for Entities: Maximising Income

With just weeks to go until the expected launch of state-backed indemnity, stakeholders including federations and practices are demanding more information about the scheme.

Little official information is known about how primary care will benefit from the proposals. If we consider what we do know about state-backed indemnity, it highlights there are still lots of questions left unanswered - especially around the issue of GP income and the impact of state-backed indemnity.

Government Indemnity Scheme for GPs – Preparing for Change
Government Indemnity Scheme for GPs – Preparing for Change

The announcement of a Government-backed indemnity scheme in October heralded a new era of indemnity provision. For the GP community the announcement was long-overdue. But the lack of detail, and brief Department of Health (DOH) press releases, means that GPs simply cannot get excited about what they don’t fully understand.

In a comprehensive review and analysis of GP Indemnity, MIAB Director, Tristan Lennox-Gentle, explores some of the common questions MIAB has been posed by GPs, Allied Healthcare Professionals, LMCs, Federations and Partnerships.

Supporting Doctors with Mental Illness
Supporting Doctors with Mental Illness

Being a GP has always meant coping with a significant amount of stress and pressure, and as primary care extends its scope of services in line with NHS England’s General Practice Forward View, things are getting no easier.

Small wonder therefore that occasionally the stress and pressure gets too much and a GP needs to seek care in respect of mental health or addiction services.

MIAB has taken steps to be able to offer indemnity cover to such GPs, enabling them to return to general practice.
