Extra support pledged for GPs this winter

NHS England has announced it will provide £10 million to GPs to support delivery of additional extended hours, out of hours and unscheduled care sessions over winter.

The winter indemnity scheme will be used to cover the costs of professional indemnity for the extra services provided by GPs, giving them the freedom to work extra sessions securely and without extra costs. 

NHS England is working with the Department of Health and Social Care, the General Practice Committee of the BMA and other organisations in developing a state-backed indemnity scheme.
