Cover your ears. The GP indemnity timebomb is about to blow


(1)It is not just about us , those currently working GPs, moaning about the rising indemnity fees . How much these foreign colleagues(2000? 3000?) employed by NHSE will have to pay for their indemnity cover ? Target( of recruiting so many GPs by 2020), what target ? (2) If this fee is going to spiral up to crazy figures , you really think these colleagues from abroad will not have a second thought ? Plus out of hours indemnity costs , there will be no GP to do any work around the clock ultimately. (3) Typically , this zombie government is burying its head in sand , exactly like the demeanour it showed in negotiatiating with EU for Brexit right now. Money has to be coughed up , whether it likes it or not . Same here with GP indemnity fees.
