AfPP Medical Professional Liability Insurance

Who can apply?

AfPP Medical Professional Liability Insurance is a Member only scheme.

The fee is in addition to your AfPP membership fee and you must maintain AfPP membership to remain covered.

As a condition of your professional registration, you must self-declare that you have an indemnity arrangement in place when you practise. Each practitioner is responsible for making sure they have the appropriate cover for their role and scope of practice. The cover in place should be relevant to the risks involved in your practice and be sufficient if a claim is successfully made against you.

If you work for the NHS, you will already have an indemnity arrangement. The NHS insures its employees for work carried out on its behalf. You may however require additional cover if you perform extended roles. For further clarification ask your employer and visit the website of your registering body.

The AfPP Medical Liability Insurance policy has been created specifically for practitioners working in and around operating theatres providing perioperative services defined as pre-operative anaesthetic care, intra-operative care and post-operative care.
