Slaughter and May advised the Department of Health and Social Care and the Welsh Government – introduction of State-backed indemnity schemes for NHS general practice

Slaughter and May advised the Department of Health and Social Care and the Welsh Government on the insurance, regulatory, commercial and State aid aspects of the introduction of the new State backed indemnity schemes for NHS general practice.

The project included, in each of England and Wales, advising on the introduction of a ‘future liabilities scheme’ to provide indemnity to persons working in NHS general practice in respect of clinical negligence claims accruing on or after the scheme launch date of 1 April 2019, as well as the negotiation and drafting of commercial agreements with the participating UK medical defence organisations, to facilitate the assumption of the historical liabilities of NHS general practitioners via the introduction of an ‘existing liabilities scheme’, established through regulations that came into force on 6 April 2020.
