State-backed indemnity scheme to cover 'all GPs for all NHS work'


Some good news at last! Due to tax, pension and indemnity there were many reasons NOT to work harder. For me with my wife a GP too, we would also have childcare expenses. Working more sessions just didn't add up. But if I am not penalized for working harder, then I will, especially if I don't feel I am taking a risk. This could really help the GP workforce. Still more to be done, especially the toxic compensation culture we have developed in the last 20 years. "have you been involved in an accident that wasn't your fault?"
