New state backed indemnity insurance for GP practices

22 Mar 2019

From 1st April 2019 a state backed indemnity scheme covering clinical negligence claims arising from NHS work carried out in GP surgeries comes into force.

However, the indemnity scheme does not cover non-NHS work or provide legal representation for inquests and disciplinary investigations. Advice from NPA Insurance should be sought in circumstances where there are gaps in cover for pharmacy professionals working in GP surgeries by contacting 01727 795914.
