Consultation on legislation for indemnity insurance

The Department of Health has launched a consultation on legislation that would oblige all regulated healthcare professionals to hold indemnity or insurance to practice.

The consultation will run from 22 February to 17 May 2013 on draft regulations on the requirement for all regulated healthcare professionals to hold an insurance or indemnity arrangement as a condition of their registration with the relevant regulatory body.

The vast majority of healthcare professionals are already covered by their employer’s arrangements. In the first instance, it will be for each individual healthcare professional to assure themselves that they are covered by an insurance or indemnity arrangement appropriate to their scope of practice.
