leave arrangements as they are change legislation to require healthcare professionals who are not covered by any state-backed scheme to hold cover that is regulated Currently, all healthcare professionals who wish to practise in the UK are legally required to hold appropriate clinical negligence cover for the costs of claims and damages awarded to patients arising out of negligence.There are concerns that the current arrangements held by healthcare professionals who are not covered by state-backed schemes could prevent patients getting appropriate compensation and put healthcare professionals at risk of being personally liable for the costs of claims.This is because these arrangements are mostly discretionary, where the providers are not contractually obliged to meet the costs of any claim and are not subject to prudential or financial conduct regulation.The groups that are likely to be most affected by any changes to the current indemnity arrangements are: This consultation is about indemnity cover for healthcare professionals who purchase their own indemnity cover because they are not covered by existing or proposed state-backed schemes.It seeks views on 2 options: regulated professionals in the NHS who hold indemnity cover which is not currently regulated, such as primary care dentistry private practice of medical doctors and other regulated healthcare professionals healthcare professionals in Northern Ireland and Scotland who are not covered by any state-backed indemnity scheme, such as GPs
By Dialogo September 07, 2011 The defense ministers of Brazil, Celso Amorim, and Argentina, Arturo Puricelli, ratified their countries’ commitment to maintaining the South Atlantic as an area of peace and free from nuclear weapons, among other points in a joint declaration signed on September 5 in Buenos Aires. During their meeting, the two ministers reviewed their countries’ bilateral cooperation agenda in the defense area, a press release issued by the Argentine ministry indicated. “For Brazil, nothing has been more important than rapprochement with Argentina, overcoming historical rivalries,” Amorim told the press on his first official visit to Argentina as defense minister, a post he took on a month ago, after serving as foreign minister in the administration of former Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. In accordance with what was agreed by the two countries’ presidents, Cristiana Kirchner and Dilma Rousseff, in July, the ministers resolved to intensify activities intended to developed a bilateral cooperation agenda in the defense area, in the context of the strategic alliance between the two countries. Within that framework, they identified areas of mutual interest, such as “maintaining the South Atlantic as an area of peace and cooperation and free from nuclear weapons,” according to the press release. The two ministers also analyzed the possibility of conducting combined exercises, with the possible participation of third countries. They resolved to coordinate positions with regard to the United Nations mission in Haiti, as well as actions and postures at the South American Defense Council (Consejo de Defensa Sudamericano) of the Union of South American Nations (Unión de Naciones Suramericanas) and other forums. In addition, they will promote an intensification of training exchanges, especially in defense engineering, and an increase in cooperation in the area of Antarctic training and logistical support. With regard to cooperation in defense technology and production, the declaration specified that the prototype development stage of the Gaucho is coming to an end, a light 4×4 vehicle that can be transported by air and is intended to equip the Armies of both countries. The two Governments also resolved to move forward on the development of armored vehicles and to cooperate in the area of naval and aerospace industry. Another objective is to “conclude as soon as possible” the process of signing an agreement between the two Governments on security measures for protecting classified information exchanged in the defense area, according to the statement.
