DH says it cannot guarantee that state-backed GP indemnity will slash costs

Comment

it sounds as if it will be a state run indemnity scheme passing all the costs onto the GPs but the state is the "insurer" backing the scheme instead of other insurance companies / Lloyds. The point about it being £10,000 off the salary compared to hospital Docs is well made. I presume DDRB (if they were independent) would take that into account comparing a GP's income to a consultant's salary.
