Business as usual for physiotherapy staff as RCN signals end to indemnity cover for employed nurses

6 February 2014 - 12:23pm

The CSP has moved fast to reassure members covered by its professional and public liability insurance (PLI) scheme that they will continue to be indemnified.


 Professional adviser Pip White: 'The CSP has no plans to withdraw PLI benefits'

It was responding to this week’s announcement by the Royal College of Nursing that it would withdraw PLI cover from its employed members from 1 July.

The CSP has no plans to withdraw PLI benefits, professional adviser Pip White said. ‘It is business as usual. This isn’t a concern, our members get a great deal.’

The CSP PLI scheme provides eligible individual CSP members with £5 million of medical malpractice and professional indemnity cover as standard.

Members wishing to have £10 million of cover can arrange this either by being a member of PhysioFirst or the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists, or by individual arrangement with Graybrook, the CSP’s insurance brokers.

The CSP scheme also offers comprehensive public liability cover, Ms White said. It is not designed to cover corporate or business liabilities.

As the CSP PLI scheme covers any activity that is within the scope of the physiotherapy profession and provides cover in any sector of work, private and independent practice is covered as standard.

The scheme is designed to cover individual members working in the UK, but also provides temporary overseas cover (with certain territorial restrictions) for up to 180 days. As with all insurance policies, members are advised to read the full policy terms and conditions in order to understand their cover.
