Allegations of clinical negligence are, sadly, an ever-present threat for medical professionals.
Crown Indemnity cover protects most medical professionals operating within the NHS against claims of clinical negligence. However, these medical professionals are increasingly at risk of dealing with regulatory matters such as a GMC/GDC enquiry or Fitness to Practice for which the Crown Indemnity does not cover.
A regulatory matter such as fitness to practice could cost in excess of £30,000 in legal fees.
This can be a stressful and an unnecessary cost when it can indemnified at a reasonable cost.
