Aesthetic Practitioner Insurance

As an aesthetic practitioner, it’s essential to have the right aesthetics insurance in place to protect you against claims for malpractice or negligence.  Whether you’re offering laser treatments, lip augmentation, dermal fillers, chemical peels or Botox, there’s always a chance that something can go wrong.

Aesthetic Practitioner Insurance, practitioners we can cover*:

  • Aesthetic and Cosemetic Nurses
  • NHS Nurses, Dental Nurses and other medically trained individuals
  • Beauty Therapists
  • Mobile Aesthetic Nurses

If there is a problem and a client sues, compensation claims can be sizeable.  Even a moderate, ‘less severe’ problem, such as a Botox treatment that leaves scarring and facial disfigurement, can lead to compensation payments of up to £48,000*.  Add to this the legal fees for defending the case, potential loss of earnings and reputational damage, and the costs of a claim can be huge.

At Enhance Insurance, we’ve helped hundreds of aesthetic professionals get the aesthetics insurance they need.  Whether you’re operating from a clinic or a salon, our friendly, experienced team can help you get the specialist protection you need.

Why Is Aesthetic Practitioner Insurance So Important?

Aesthetic practitioner insurance provides specialist financial protection against the risks associated with providing treatments.  Most aesthetic procedures come with a risk, and no matter how skilful or careful you are, there’s always a chance that things won’t go to plan, and you’ll face a negligence or malpractice claim. 

Aesthetic practitioner insurance can also offer other important protections.  It can protect you from claims arising from the advice you have given a client or because they aren’t happy with the treatment’s outcomes.  Professional indemnity claims are not uncommon – especially in cases where expected aesthetic treatment outcomes are not set beforehand.  Having professional indemnity cover as part of your aesthetic practitioner insurance can give you protection against these claims, too.  You can also include a public liability insurance element, which covers your legal liability for injury to members of the public or damage to third-party property.

You would need aesthetic cover to protect you and your practice for malpractice, negligence, employee liability claims. You might never actually have to make a claim, but it’s better to err on the side of caution by procuring insurance than being caught outside with your clothes in the rain. 

How much does aesthetic practitioner insurance cost?

Is Professional Indemnity Mandatory?

Under UK law, professional indemnity is not compulsory on a broad scale. It, however, is necessary for medical professionals to have adequate insurance to practice in the UK. Most of these obligations are levied by professional bodies and regulators.

How Is Medical Negligence Proved?

Medical negligence in the UK is determined by a three-stage test which establishes that the claimant has rights to a duty of care; if that duty of care has been breached; and if, as a result of the breach, the claimant was harmed.

Who Is Not Covered By The NHS Indemnity?

NHS Indemnity does not cover family care professionals that are working under contract for services. These include general practitioners, dental practitioners, self-employed healthcare professionals, etc.
