Indemnity Cover Support

Professional Indemnity is an insurance plan to financially safeguard medical practitioners against legal costs and claims for compensation by the patient in case of a legal row.

There are numerous choices in the Irish Market, as with all policies it is worth taking the time to investigate which is the best option for you and your employer. Some offers of employment will cover you under the ‘practices’ cover, some will require you to have your own but offer a remuneration within your pay pack, if you are considering Locum work it is vital to have your own policy to cover this.
