For many years, Medisec has had the assistance of a GP Advisory Panel which reviews procedures and developments taking place in general practice. The Panel meets formally on a quarterly basis and considers a wide range of issues which concern General Practitioners.
In addition, Medisec are in ongoing contact with the Panel on day-to-day issues arising from an advisory, claim or indemnity perspective.
The Panel advises both Medisec and its insurer, Allianz, as to what it considers normal GP practice for inclusion under the professional indemnity insurance policy. In considering its views, the Panel endeavours to establish a balance between the procedural practice and the associated risk. However, the final decision on Policy cover rests with Allianz.
The Panel's best practice advice is published (monthly/quarterly/etc) in our newsletters.
