You might be aware professionals should have indemnity insurance, it is in fact a really important thing to have in a work practice. It’s there to make sure professionals that when they are working are protected from a claim being made against them. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to make a claim then that insurance is what will be used to pay for your claim. But what type of situations lead to claims?
Doctors are held in high esteem for good reason, they are highly trained professionals and their years of study have equipped them with a vast knowledge of health and sickness. They are there because they have the skills. But they are human, and if you are one of those people who makes a mistake you could find yourself where you need to make a claim for compensation due to medical negligence. There is no legal requirement for them to have professional indemnity insurance, but it is a good idea. The General Medical Council strongly advises all its members to have this insurance.
Dentists and opticians and indemnity insurance
The College of Optometrists and the General Dental Council are agreed and advise all their members to take out professional indemnity insurance. Doctors who run their own practice will have cover which protects all of their staff in the event of a claim. So that includes all the staff they have on the payroll. Any mistakes they make will be covered by professional indemnity insurance. That means if their mistake have had an impact on your life then you can make a claim. Basically anything that happens on their premises such as an injury to you the patient could mean a claim being made.
