Consultation on guidance for registrants about the statutory requirement to have appropriate professional indemnity cover as a condition of registration

10/06/2013 - 02/08/2013

This consultation has now closed.

We sought the views of stakeholders on proposed guidance for registrants about a statutory requirement for healthcare professionals to have appropriate professional indemnity cover as a condition of their registration with us. Please note that this consultation does not apply to social workers in England.

This statutory requirement is being introduced by the UK Government (subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary legislation) for all statutory regulated healthcare professionals. We consider that the vast majority of registrants who are affected by this proposal will already be able to meet this requirement – they will be indemnified by their employer and/or will hold separate indemnity insurance.

At the time of launching this consultation, the proposed statutory requirement to have appropriate indemnity cover was not proposed to extend to social workers in England registered with us. This consultation and the draft guidance assume that this requirement will not extend to social workers in England.
