Locum Medical Insurance (Practices)
Do Locums need Medical Indemnity?
Locum Medical Indemnity Insurance simply depends on who you are working for. For example: If you are working as a locum for an NHS trust, indemnity should be provided under the Crown Indemnity Scheme.
However, if you are working as a Locum for a private hospital or healthcare clinic, you will need to arrange appropriate insurance coverage for any work you do for that specific organisation, even if it is arranged through a recruitment agency.
This is sometimes purchased from traditional Medical Defence organisations at a significant cost, with very narrow coverage (such as no out of hours coverage for example).
At Servca, we specialise in creating bespoke insurance solutions for healthcare professionals to ensure you are fully protected, complete with employment, regulatory cover.
