 QUESTION OF THE WEEK…

Can I get a Non- VR Doctor using a replacement exemption…?

If a doctor who started at your practice when you were classified as DPA, decides to leave you can use their replacement exemption for an incoming doctor. 

Any doctor VR or Non-VR is eligible to take over this exemption as long as they are also meeting their 19AA restrictions (if relevant). 

Please note, not all 3GA programs will approve a General Practitioner on a replacement exemption. For example, PEP and MDRAP will not approve a GP who holds or will hold a replacement exemption.
