Winter Indemnity Scheme for GPs

The Winter Indemnity Scheme for GPs (2017) has been launched today. The scheme has been launched to support GP out of hours services to operate effectively through the winter period by ensuring that additional indemnity costs do not become a disincentive to GPs to work in out of hours / unscheduled care services.

This will support GPs wanting to start working within a OOH setting , or support those wanting to increase their commitment by working additional sessions in an out of hours or unscheduled care setting, including in NHS 111 services.

More information about the scheme and how it can be accessed can be found on the NHS England website.
