RPS England calls for Crown Indemnity for all pharmacists

RPS Director for England Robbie Turner calls on NHS to provide Crown Indemnity for all pharmacists

Responding to news from the Department of Health that it is planning the development of a state-backed indemnity scheme for general practice in England where cover would include the activities of practice staff, Robbie Turner Director of RPS in England said: 

“I know that the rising cost of clinical negligence is a great source of concern for pharmacists and I hope this change will make indemnity more affordable for pharmacist working in General Practice in England. However, the RPS would like to see this provision extended to all pharmacists providing NHS services."
