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


The traditional MDO's are exploiting the fact that you can't be on the Performers list without Indemnity. They are declining indemnity for GPs who had GMC issues, even after being cleared. The GMC may allow a GP back to practice but some of the MDOs never forgive. Indeed they are proving more ruthless than the regulators. The BMA has been aware of this for more than 3 years and nothing has been done. Very soon, it is the MDOs that will have a final say on a GP practicing or not and not the GMC. The GMC does forgive and allow GPs a second chance, some MDOs never forgive. We have read several such reports in the Pulse. What is the GPC doing about that?
