The GMC now has powers to check that doctors hold appropriate indemnity insurance. It can also withdraw a doctor’s licence to practise if they work without adequate indemnity cover.
A doctor needs to have insurance or indemnity in place when they start to practise in the UK. The type and level of insurance or indemnity required depends on where a doctor works, whether they are employed or self-employed, and the type of work they do.
Don’t risk your licence – ensure you are fully covered. If you do not already hold indemnity insurance, please contact:
The Medical Defence Union (MDU) on 0800 716 376 www.themdu.com/
Or the Medical Protection Society (MPS) on 0800 561 9000 www.medicalprotection.org/uk
Or another suitable insurance provider to arrange the relevant cover.
