'Indemnity scheme is good news but the hard work begins now'


To be frank, having worked in the NHS for over 41 years, litigation itself is the issue. No matter about the cover, complaints about care are devastating. as evinced by a Coroner statement earlier this year, GPs are Human beings, he said, after the suicide of a GP, a mother of bereft children. Unless the culture of complaints change in this country, Medicine is not a great vocation for anybody, irrespective of the legal cover.
