GPs facing escalating indemnity costs for seven-day working, claims GPC

Comment

The problem is that GPs are now doing so many different types of work outside of standard day time hours that the boundaries between them are becoming increasingly blurred and of course we change roles frequently. This is really risky for GPs because if you get the details wrong, you could potentially find yourself without cover. The MDO system lacks transparency and looks dodgier by the minute. There is only one solution to this and that is for the government to provide crown indemnity for all GPs.
