Winter pressures: supporting GPs to work in unscheduled care settings

NHS England is piloting a scheme with the main medical defence organisations (MDO) to reimburse indemnity costs to GPs committing to new out of hours sessions between now and 7 April 2015.

GPs will need to pay their MDO but, by evidencing their payment to their employer, will get reimbursed the value of any additional premium they have had to pay. Providers recruiting GPs will need to cover this additional business expense but will be able to be reimbursed from their lead commissioner, who in turn will be reimbursed by NHS England. CCGs interested in learning more about the scheme should contact england.primarycareops@nhs.net
