Rules/Other as made
This instrument amends existing medical and midwife indemnity legislation to introduce a temporary exemption under the Run-off Cover Scheme (ROCS) during the COVID-19 pandemic. The exemption will enable non-practising doctors and eligible midwives to return to practice and temporarily assist during the pandemic without losing their eligibility under the ROCS for prior practice. It will also introduce mirror provisions within new delegated legislation to commence on 1 July 2020, to ensure there is continuity in these arrangements.
