GP Placements

These will be at a GMC approved training practice. Each doctor will have a named GP educational supervisor (usually a trainer) and will be for an agreed period, and can be flexible around educational needs, location and personal commitments.

The supervised practice may vary from a month, up to a maximum of six months (full time). Part time placements will be pro-rata and the doctor may be permitted to work in another (non-GP) role during the scheme.

Medical Indemnity Insurance

Doctors will need appropriate medical indemnity for both their application to the NMPL and to work in the I&R scheme. The indemnity does not need to be activated and paid for until the start of the placement but NHS England will need written proof before you start a placement in General Practice. Regional teams can advise about what cover and payment is needed.

From 1st November 2016 up until 31st October 2018, Doctors undertaking the I&R scheme are able to claim a one-off payment of £1,250 from the GP NRO to assist with the costs of indemnity whilst undertaking the scheme.
