The Winter Indemnity Scheme for GPs 2017 has been launched today, Thursday 28 September. The scheme has been launched to support GP out of hours services to operate effectively through the winter period by ensuring that additional indemnity costs do not become a disincentive to GPs to work in out of hours / unscheduled care services. This will support GPs wanting to start working within a out of hours setting or support those wanting to increase their commitment by working additional sessions in an out of hours or unscheduled care setting, including in NHS111 services.

More information about the scheme and how it can be accessed can be found on the NHS England website here

This scheme has been developed with the MDOs and you can find information on how to apply for the scheme via your MDO website at:
