NHS England funds to help tackle rising GP indemnity costs

2nd October 2017

NHS England is to strengthen out-of-hours GP services by offering additional funds to tackle the rising costs of GP indemnity.

An extra ten million pounds is to be made available to help with immediate out-of-hours provision such as shifts for NHS 111 services, with the indemnity scheme developed with medical defence organisations.

Last winter, an extra 80,000 GP sessions took place through NHS England's indemnity scheme, with even more out-of-hours shifts expected to be provided this year due to the increased budget.

The scheme will run from October 1st 2017 until April 2nd 2018, meaning doctors will be able to commit to more out-of-hours sessions without the need for them to negotiate additional changes to their level of indemnity cover.

Dr Arvind Madan, NHS England's director of primary care, said: "NHS England is taking practical advice to ensure rising indemnity costs don't stand in the way of GPs being able to support their patients over winter, both during working hours and at evenings and weekends."
