GP forced to quit out of hours after being quoted £5k indemnity for one session


The calvary is correct. Just demand an extra £100 per session from the OOH provider. It is ultimately them who should be paying for the indemnity increases, not the individual doctors. They should be taking in to account indemnity costs (and increases) when submitting a bid for the contract, which ultimately means that if you do not pass on the costs of increased indemnity, the money is going directly in to their profits.
