A Guide for GP Practice Managers

There is also useful information included in the GP Registrar and GP Trainer areas of this website.  Please follow the links below for useful information.

Medical Indemnity

One of the many benefits that you will enjoy as a GP specialty trainee in the East Midlands is that your professional indemnity has been arranged and paid for on your behalf for your full three year training period; this will ensure adequate and appropriate indemnity and access to medico-legal assistance is in place for your entire programme whether in hospital or general practice. This scheme is in tandem with our host employer arrangement so that your contractual and indemnity arrangements are as simple and consistent as possible over the three years.

We hope this overview of the Lead Employer provides the key contact numbers and reference links for you.

However should you have any queries which remain outstanding please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Lead Employer GP Employment Services team at
