Annual hikes in GP indemnity fees to be reimbursed from April 2017


Good news in principle if it comes to something. I've had no claims and no change in my clinical practice this year from a very part time out of hours salary role which costs me a quarter of my gross salary in indemnity fees. ( On the plus side, I barely pay any income tax as a result of this huge expense on a relatively low GP income)... MPS have put the fee up by £1000 for my next year - no obvious reason, except it is 'all unscheduled care' which is higher risk & they have increased the indemnity cost of this type of work. No surprise shifts aren't filled most weekends.. So NHSEngland that's a bit above inflation according to my maths, how & when will I be able to claim / reduce this cost please? Please Pulse do follow up on this issue, your website crashed when this breaking news feature popped up on my emails, it is a big issue for everyone in primary care.
