Update on NHS Wales Master Indemnity Agreement (MIA)
NHS Wales Procurement Service has recently been in positive dialogue with Department of Health around implementing a separate but complimentary Master Indemnity Agreement arrangement within NHS Wales. This new MIA will replace the former system which became redundant after DOH had undertaken a major review of their approach (up until that point the 2 systems had been almost exactly the same in terms of approach, documentation and suppliers). This had the net effect of making the NHS Wales MIA outdated and defunct.
NHS Wales Procurement Service is in the process of getting all the MIA providers currently on the DoH list onto the new NHS Wales register. This is a significant undertaking requiring circa 700 suppliers to enact a new set of documentation.
We have included the following documentation for your attention:
- Current Register
- MIA Terms and Conditions
- MIA Call off Agreement
- MIA Guidance Notes
In exceptional circumstances (i.e. for reasons of urgency where it is not possible for the Supplier to enter into an Overarching Master Indemnity Agreement with NHS (Wales) prior to the delivery of the Equipment or the Master Indemnity Agreement Register is not showing that the Supplier has current insurance), an Authority can still enter into an MIA Call-Off Agreement with a Supplier, but should only do this once it has carried out the necessary insurance checks itself.
We will update of any further developments via this website. Thank you.
