NMC Registered Nurses

Insurance for Nurses

No matter whether you’re an advanced nurse with your own company, or a self-employed agency nurse, it is vital you have the right insurance solution which is both cost-effective and meets your legal obligations set out by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

Your job role will require you to perform a wide range of tasks, from physical exams to administering medicines to ordering and analysing tests. Whilst you are providing such a wide range of services in what is often a short timescale, such a challenge can cause mistakes to happen.

The correct insurance policy will provide you with protection against various claims that can be made as a result of these mistakes and accidents.

So, to make sure you have the right insurance covers as an NMC registered nurse, be sure to get in contact with us here at Enhance insurance on 0800 980 3776. Our team of insurance advisors will be on hand to give you the advice you need and make recommendations on your cover.

We aim to provide you with first class service at all times.

Why is it Important to Have Insurance as an NMC Registered Nurse?

As a nurse, you are taking on the responsibility of healing and administering treatment to patients, and whilst it is a rare occurrence, mistakes can happen. Insurance will not only give you the cover you need in the event of a claim as a result of an accident, but it is also a requirement as a member of the NMC to have appropriate cover in place when you practice as a nurse. 

Failure to have the correct cover will not only mean you are breaking your declaration as an NMC member, but you are also breaking the law. If you are found to be practicing without appropriate insurance in place, you could be removed from the NMC register and unable to practice until you have the right cover.

We aim to provide you with first class service at all times.

What Insurance Should You Have as an NMC Registered Nurse?

Medical Indemnity

As an NMC registered nurse, you will need medical indemnity insurance. This will cover any injury, misdiagnosis, delays in referral, physical or mental harm caused to a patient during the life of the policy. Any of these instances could cause you to be sued due to professional error and being deemed neglectful in your duties as a nurse. The correct insurance policy could help protect you from legal costs and can provide coverage for neglect and defamation.

Public Liability

Public liability insurance will protect you against claims and legal action for personal injury or property damage from third parties that are not related to treatment risks. It’ll help you deal with legal costs for the claim. A successful claim and the legal costs that come with it could be ruinous, so it’s vital that you are completely protected, just in case.
