For the fourth year running, MDU GP members undertaking additional out-of-hours sessions over the peak winter period can apply to have their indemnity costs funded by NHS England.
Dr Matthew Lee, Professional Services Director at the MDU commented:
'We are really pleased that NHS England has committed to supporting GPs with a further Winter Indemnity Scheme and are happy to be working with them to make it as straightforward as possible for our GP members to access the scheme.
'Last winter, we saw the highest take-up to date to around 1,000 MDU GPs offering additional sessions of OOH work under the scheme. With this winter's scheme broadened to include additional 'extended access' sessions we anticipate participation this year will be even greater.'
The winter indemnity scheme begins on 1 October 2018 and runs until 31 March 2019. GPs who wish to commit to working additional out-of-hours (OOH) sessions should agree to the sessional commitment with their provider and check that any additional sessions they commit to are eligible to be included in the scheme. Once confirmed, GP members can apply online to add these sessions to their MDU membership.
NHS England have again agreed to reimburse the cost of these additional OOH sessions directly to the MDU.
