This new and improved scheme launched June 2016, provides independent Medical Malpractice & Public Liability cover for Paramedics domiciled in the United Kingdom. This is the only product recommended by the College of Paramedics, for which members receive a 15% discount with enhanced benefits.
This insurance facility will appeal to Paramedics who are personally accountable when working privately or as an independent self-employed practitioner. Premiums will vary according to qualification with rates for BSc (or equivalent) Paramedics, Specialist Paramedics, Advanced or Consultant Paramedics.
The cover will apply to a wide range of practice including Good Samaritan Acts, GP Services, Urgent Care Centres, Minor Injury Clinics, Walk-In Centres, Event Work, Medico-Legal Reporting, Training, Offshore, Search & Rescue, and Repatriation Services etc including Agency or other work where alternative indemnity is not provided.
Unlike the indemnity provided by Medical Defence Organisations (MDO's) our cover does not rely on the discretion of the indemnity provider and is portable allowing the Paramedic to work for one or more employers within their scope of practice.
Limits of Indemnity for Malpractice cover range from £500,000 to £5 Million. All policies include Public Liability Insurance as standard for a limit of £5 Million.
How to Apply
