Respond to NMC Information about Professional Indemnity Insurance

From October this year, it will be a legal requirement for nurses and midwives to have an indemnity arrangement in order to be registered with [the NMC].


When you renew your registration, you will be required to self declare that you either have an indemnity arrangement in place that is appropriate for your practice, or will have one in place when you start practising. Most nurses and midwives will be covered through their employer, but it is your responsibility to check what is covered by your employers indemnity insurance.

Next week, we will be asking for your comments on our draft information on professional indemnity insurance. We have produced a document explaining the new requirements and would like your thoughts on whether it is clear and easy to understand.

From next Monday (22 July), a form for your comments and the draft information explaining the new requirements will be live here. It will stay open until 17:00 on Friday 6 September.

In the meantime, please read our key points regarding professional indemnity insurance which you need to be aware of.
