Somerset LMC Weekly Update Friday 30th October 2015

Date sent: Friday 30 October 2015

All Somerset GPs and Practice Managers

Provider Support Unit At the LMC Study Day in May, and more recently in the LMC Roadshows on this subject, there was a strong message from Practices that many were looking at ways of working together more closely.  ‘Collaboration’ seems to be a frequently heard word at the moment, and this may be one way that Practices can manage the many challenges facing us at this time.  Please read the paper attached after which please feed back to the LMC office by the 23rd November with your decisions what ever they are lmcoffice@somersetlmc.nhs.uk

Have You Had Any Problems With Medical Indemnity Insurance? The LMC has been asked to gather examples of problems or concerns  that GPs have with their medical indemnity cover.   Apart from the inexorable rise in  “normal” premiums we are aware that GPs have  sometimes been  asked to pay significantly more if they undertake any roles  that extend beyond routine daytime GMS work,  have been out of practice for any reason, or have a claim history.

If you have had such an experience, or any problem with arranging indemnity cover, and would like us to pass it on (anonymised)  for discussion in a national forum, please contact the LMC Medical Director harry.yoxall@somersetlmc.nhs.uk
