Government delays state-backed GP indemnity update

Comment

I suspect they've looked under the bonnet of medical litigation against GPs and had a small heart attack. It was always going to be complex as there is no one GP job and the risks we face are escalating rapidly. What is really needed is reform of the arcane compensation system that assumes all future care delivered will be private. We should go the same way as New Zealand with a no blame system, it would be much better and safer for everyone in the long run if we abandon the culture of fear that now stalks UK doctors.
