GP Indemnity Top Up

The Clinical Negligence Scheme for General Practice (CNSGP) came in to force April 2019, covering all providers of NHS primary medical services, including out of hours providers. The scheme extends to all GPs and others working for general practice who are carrying out activities in connection with the delivery of primary medical services – including salaried GPs, locums, students and trainees, nurses, clinical pharmacists, agency workers and other practice staff.

The CNSGP covers clinical negligence, but will not extend that cover to any private work undertaken, travel injections, occupational health activities, good samaritan acts, medical report writing or legal defence for inquests or GMC inquiries/investigations.  These need to be covered elsewhere to ensure you do not leave yourself vulnerable.

In conjunction with an established medical indemnity provided we are able to arrange cover for GP's to cover the gaps left by CNSGP, whether they do any private work or not.  Cover is flexible and limits range from £1,000,000 to £10,000,000 dependent upon your needs or requirements.  Cover is contractually based and provides a medico legal helpline staffed by qualified professionals, as well as giving run off cover of 25 years when you retire or cease practice.
