Should GPs shop around for indemnity?

Comment

So don't work for NHS. Last year my pensionable pay was 60K- I paid more than 8k for my indemnity. For year ending 2016 I will be paying 15k - almost double of what I paid last year to the Insurer. So next year in September, I intend to retire. No more hungry mouths to feed and let the Health Secretary or his stooges see my patients. Walk out, there is a life beyond general practice and you don't have to be subservient all your lives. This was never a part of the GMS Contract and Hippocrates never advocated putting out the other cheek.
