As part of the scheme you will be given a placement within a GP surgery. Your placement will be at a General Medical Council (GMC) approved training practice. You will have a named GP educational supervisor (usually a trainer) for an agreed period who can be flexible around your educational needs, location and personal commitments. The supervised practice may vary from a month, up to a maximum of six months (full time).
Medical Indemnity Insurance
You will need appropriate medical indemnity for both your application to the Medical Performers List (MPL) and to work while on 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 or your dedicated account manager can advise about what cover and payment is needed.
A Payment of up to £750 for costs of professional negligence cover while on the Scheme (effective from 1 August 2019)
