Frequently asked questions.

Q
Does my surgery need employers liability insurance?
A
Yes. Under the Employers Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act, all organisations that have staff are required by law to have employers liability insurance.
Q
When do I need to get employers liability cover for my practice?
A
You require employers liability cover from the day your care business starts employing staff. From the moment you have any person to whom you are responsible, whether paid or not, you are at risk of legal action. To qualify as "staff" a person does not have to be paid or under contract to you. It includes any person to whom you have a legal duty of care. This means that sometimes even sole traders will need employers liability insurance.


Q
What is the minimum cover I need to have in place for my practice?
A
The level of cover required is dependent on many factors and we would need to assess the requirements of the business and make recommendations based on the information provided. There are also other factors that can dictate the level of cover needed, such as the types of people you are caring for or local authority requirements to meet the terms of the contract.
Q
How much public liability insurance will I need?
A
The level of cover you need is related to the amount of risk faced by your business. Cover can be anywhere from £2 million to £10 million or beyond. The minimum value could be dictated by the clients you work with, or local authority contracts you have tendered for.
