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


"Each practice will receive a lump sum payment in April 2017 based on the rate at which costs have risen." So what provision there is for locum/sessional GPs in this respect? Soaring indemnity costs are a universal issue for GPs (that is for all types of GPs, not just those attached to a particular practice as a partner/salaried) - but especially locum GPs where indemnity costs are higher than for anyone else. The locum workforce is a vital part of ensuring the system ticks along and equal consideration should be given to providing an Indemnity Support Scheme for locums (who have been hit by the biggest rises) as much as anyone else.
