CQC reimbursement - reminder In 2016, the GPC negotiated for practices’ CQC fees to be fully reimbursed by their Commissioner. This is a practice entitlement, therefore please ensure your practice claims, currently this is via NHSE by completing this claim form and returning together with the CQC invoice to  england.pcfinancesw@nhs.net

Indemnity costs Following some queries since the announcement, the GPC have had discussions with the medical defence organisations regarding the likely indemnity costs for their membership offering after April, and so far they have shared the following information:

Falsified Medicines Directive GPC state that practices 'could' register and the DDA advice is that practices should, You can register as a requestor on the  Securemed website  but cannot proceed with full registration as currently the software will only allow you to get so far as it then needs details of the equipment, which the GPC and DDA are advising  practices not to buy as it should be centrally funded.Therefore we would advise that you do not proceed with the full registration, but merely remain a requestor.
