Guide to new care models and your medical indemnity

A new GP/Medeconomics supplement examines how new care models are changing general practice, the challenges they face and the implications for GPs' medical indemnity.

GPs and practices are beginning to recognise the need to work collaboratively. A Nuffield Trust and RCGP survey carried out in 2015 found that 73% of GP and practice staff respondents in England were now part of a formal or informal collaboration, such as a federation.

But there are many challenges to overcome to deliver this new collaborative way of working. This supplement looks at how new care models are developing and how they could affect your medical indemnity.
