Insurance Worries for GPs and Nursing Staff have Now been Dispelled

RCN is welcoming a brand-new indemnity scheme that is being state-backed. This will automatically provide cover to all of the nurses who are working under the NHS GP service. The clinical negligence scheme is going to give help to the General Practice and this is being operated by the NHS Resolution. This is going to provide a good level of indemnity cover to those who need it. From the 1st of April, the staff who are working in any kind of GP practice will provide GP services to NHS patients as usual, but the only difference is that they will be covered for it. Nursing staff do not need to make payments for the scheme and they don’t need to register either.

The new scheme is really going to make those who work in a nurse agency better off and it will also help those who work in a nursing recruitment agency. The best thing about the scheme is that it is going to cover negligence liabilities and it will also help those who have been forced to make a claim in the past. Over the years, the RCN team have been forced to try and support members who work in GP practices. The RCN has actually heard from both members and even non-members in the past and some GPS have told them that they will no longer be purchasing this type of cover. Of course, as the state backed cover is only for those who have worked with NHS in the past. The manager is calling for changes like this to happen and quite rightly so. It will help to protect workers and it will also help those who really do need it the most. Of course, only time will tell.
