Chiropodists and Podiatrists
  • Overview

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.
