Healthcare Professions Indemnity to be compulsory

Posted: Friday, March 8th, 2013

A consultation has been published on a Section 60 (Health Act 1999) Order to require all healthcare professionals to have insurance or indemnity cover in place as a condition of their registration. This will also implement Article 4 (2) (d) of the EU Directive 2011/25/EU on the application of patients' rights in cross-border healthcare. Whilst the pharmacy regulators (GPhC and PSNI) require declarations about indemnity at registration or renewal the sanctions are currently only exercisable through the fitness to practise procedures. Consultation closes on 17th May 2013.
