Updated guidance on indemnity and insurance published

By GDC | 11th January 2024 | News

The GDC have published the outcome report to their consultation on updating the Guidance on Indemnity and Insurance, along with the revised guidance that will come into effect from 12 February 2024.

GDC encourage dental professionals to familiarise themselves with the updated guidance as it now provides more information to better support them to meet their responsibilities towards patients, including information on the additional benefits to consider when choosing cover, such as wellbeing support.

Although the updated guidance does not introduce any new requirements for dental professionals, it clarifies the requirements around holding cover that will compensate patients who have suffered harm, in the event of a successful claim.

GDC received a good number of responses to their consultation with most welcoming the proposed changes to the guidance. They also received much valuable feedback and suggestions for improvements, all of which has helped shape the finalised guidance.
