State-backed Indemnity for General Practice (CNSGP)

01 Apr 2019

On the 1st April 2019, the Government’s state-backed indemnity scheme for general practice (CNSGP) came into force. This new scheme provides cover for clinical negligence claims for all GPs, and all other staff working in delivering primary medical services under GMS, PMS and APMS contracts.

The scheme covers medical malpractice liabilities:

  1. incurred on or after 1 April 2019; and
  2. arising from an act (or an omission to act) on the part of a GP or any other person working in a general practice setting where that act (or omission):
  • is connected to the diagnosis, care or treatment of a patient; and
  • results in personal injury or loss to the patient.

The scheme will be administered by NHS Resolution and full details can be found by following the below links:

Clinical Negligence Scheme for General Practice

The National Health Service (Clinical Negligence Scheme for General Practice) Regulations 2019

The scheme will not cover non-NHS or private work, attendance and support at inquests, support for regulatory investigations and proceedings as well as non-clinical liabilities.

In addition to the above, there is also a requirement for run-off cover to be purchased for pre-1st April 2019 liabilities where these are not covered by occurrence based protection.

Corvelia are committed to providing our policyholders with first class coverage solutions to meet any clinical negligence or medical malpractice liabilities that are not covered under CNSGP (including run-off).
