Chiropodists and podiatrists insurance
As a frontline clinician, you have to balance the priorities of
your patients, employers and fellow registrants, in the high-stakes
environment of health services.
This can sometimes leave you vulnerable to finger-pointing if
there is a problem, especially given the popularisation, in recent
years, of conditional-fee (so-called ‘no win no fee’) arrangements
in the field of law.
Towergate Professional Risks provides professional liability
insurance for chiropodists and podiatrists and offers discounts for
members of professional bodies.
If a patient, or anyone else, tries to sue you for compensation,
as a result of your podiatry or chiropody work, professional
liability insurance will help you to defend the claim.
It will pay for any compensation/damages awarded against you and
the legal costs of defending the claim, even if there is an
investigation by the Health Professions Council.
