Medical Indemnity Guidance for GPs

Updated on Friday, 16 September 2016, 696 views

The BMA has issued guidance about medical indemnity in a bid to help GPs cope with spiralling costs.

The  association has worked with the medical defence organisations to produce a report which outlines what exactly indemnity is, what options are available to GPs and why the cost of premiums is rocketing.

The report also considers possible solutions, including indemnity premiums for GPs being covered by the NHS.
