New indemnity scheme for historical clinical negligence claims in general practice

The existing liabilities scheme for general practice will provide staff with cover for historical NHS clinical negligence claims, ie for NHS work carried out before 1 April 2019.

Under the scheme, clinical negligence cover will be provided for current and former general practice members of medical defence organisations (MDOs) that have reached agreement with the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) for the scheme to provide such cover. The new regulations are now before Parliament and will come into force on 6 April 2020.
