Consultation description

The government wants to hear views on legislation that would mean all regulated healthcare professionals have to hold indemnity or insurance to practise.

The vast majority of healthcare professionals are already covered by their employer’s arrangements, however this legislation would ensure that patients are protected by law if things don’t go according to plan. If a patient suffers harm as a result of negligence, they will be able to seek compensation.
