PCPA announce indemnity insurance discount for members

Due to unprecedented demand from members working within GP practices for clear comprehensive and competitive professional indemnity cover. We have been looking at ways we might support our members working in this exciting and expanding sector.
PCPA have worked with our Practice Pharmacy Group, to inform the development of specialist insurance from a variety of suppliers to fit the new job descriptions in this sector. From these discussions MIAB offered the PCPA a welcome discount for our full members.

 'As a specialist insurance broker providing indemnity insurance to GPs, GP practices, Individual and Community Pharmacists, MIAB is well positioned to assist NHS England to achieve not only its integration target of a further 1500 GP based pharmacists by 2020, but also its plan to free-up GP time to care for thier patients.Similarly, we are delighted to be able to offer PCPA members this special deal on a product specifically designed to cater to their needs'
