Medical Indemnity

Medical Indemnity Insurance protects health professionals and establishments financially in situations where services provided cause illness, injury, financial loss, or any other form of harm through negligence or omission of healthcare services.

It includes protection from things such as defamation, loss or damage to important documents, breaches of duty, among many others.

Whilst working in an NHS Trust, you will normally be covered by the Clinical Indemnity Scheme set up by that Trust with NHS Resolution.  However, professional indemnity cover will not be automatically included - you will need to arrange this for yourself.  Any concerns please check with your Host Trust.


Medical Indemnity cover for the following specialty training programmes is now arranged via your relevant HEE region:

  • General Practice
  • Public Health
  • Palliative Medicine
  • Occupational Medicine
  • Community Sexual Reproductive Health
  • Genitourinary Medicine

It is your responsibility as a colleague-in-training to ensure that you have sufficient clinical and professional indemnity cover N.B. it is not the responsibility of the Lead Employer to provide indemnity cover.
