Indemnity rises could stop me from working


I challenge the MDO's to prove that OOH care is more 'high risk' as it is a perception rather than fact in my opinion. The OOH organisation that I work for has not had a claim brought to them apart from a case dating back to 2011. We are on the face of it dealing with mainly coughs and cold in an environment where you have 20 minute appointments. Add in summary care records means more information is available than before. Finally, the safety netting aspect in OOH is much tighter. So therefore - where is the risk???
