Our dedicated Medical Indemnity team can provide instant quotations and cover for all types of EMT’s and Paramedic Practitioners.
If you are contracting to a private healthcare provider, or simply split your time between the NHS and self-employed work, we have the right cover for you.
Paramedic Professional Indemnity Insurance provides medical defence indemnity protection for professional negligence claims, or allegations of malpractice, received against a paramedic in the course of their professional duties.
Should a patient seek compensation for injury or illness as a result of the care you have provided a Paramedic PI Insurance will provide cover for defence costs and any compensation awards up to the limit of indemnity purchased under the policy.
UK Government introduced legislation on 1st April 2015 making it a legal requirement for Paramedics registered to the Health & Care Professions Council (hcpc), to have appropriate professional indemnity (malpractice cover) in place and this now forms part of the hcpc application and renewal process.
If you are working for an agency, it is highly likely you will need to purchase your own cover to meet your legal obligations, but you should check your own individual contract carefully.

A self-employed paramedic is working at an event where a festival goer suffers heart failure. Whilst the paramedic applied CPR and called for assistance, the victims family claim that more could have been done to mitigate the illness and reduce delay in calling for support and are seeking financial compensation for negligence.
If you are working for a healthcare provider under a contract of employment, then they have a duty to arrange suitable cover, but we would still suggest you obtain a copy of this document and have this provided in writing.
If you are engaged as a self-employed contractor, you should check your engagement letter carefully as it is highly likely cover will not apply and you need to purchase your own indemnity protection.
Yes, it is now common place for many paramedics to also carry out cosmetic or aesthetic procedures. Our cover can easily be extended to cover use of injectables or other clinical cosmetic procedures.
