We are pleased to launch our new and exclusive Legal Expenses Scheme available to all members of our client associations. Full details and applications can be obtained here.
This cover is not usually available under Medical Professional Liability of Fitness to Practise insurance, and includes valuable access to a 24/7 legal helpline, and a choice of limits to cover specialist legal fees to defend allegations of criminal behaviour. As with all insurances it is hoped the cover is never required, but for a cost of just £26 per annum it provides re-assurance that specialist advice and support is on hand to respond to unfounded allegations.
