Professional liability insurance cover up to £3m is recommended by the NMC, the HCPC and the General Medical Council. This must be relevant to the risks involved in your practice so that it is sufficient in the event that a successful claim is made against you. It is also suggested to candidates working for agencies and is especially important where employers do not accept vicarious liability.
Policies run yearly from 1st April to 31st March. You can start a policy at any point in the year irrespective of your membership renewal date and the policy premiums will be calculated pro-rata to the end of March the following year.
