We work closely with our insurer partners and the SCoR to ensure our specialist professional indemnity insurance cover is tailored to the ever-changing needs of radiographers and sonographers. – there are many products out there that simply do not meet every one of your needs and with litigation and legal matters forever increasing in your sector; now is the most crucial time for you to ensure that all facets of risk are protected.

Since 1st October 2017, the indemnity benefit offered by The Society of Radiographers only covers those of you that have an appropriate employment contract (that comes with indemnity – please be advised that some zero-hour contracts still do not have adequate coverage). Members who are self-employed, independent practitioners, freelance, locum or trade via a limited company or umbrella arrangement will need to arrange it individually. – since the 1st of October; we have observed many loopholes and workarounds being implemented, however; we have seen that many practitioners are left extremely vulnerable and we are here to discuss your own situation with you and advise of exactly what’s required or confirm if your chosen solution outside of our bespoke SCoR scheme is going to be adequate. Remember – the stakes are high and we need to protect you and your assets.
Our specialist SCoR Indemnity cover is available for both individuals, partnerships, LTD companies and all other types of medical entities and our team of malpractice and indemnity experts are on hand to provide expert guidance on your specific requirements.

The Society & College of Radiographers continue to provide professional indemnity where a contract of employment is in place in the form of vicarious or secondary protection.
If you are working under an employment contract, your employer is required to arrange indemnity protection against professional negligence or malpractice. However, should the employers’ policy fail to respond, the SCoR indemnity scheme should provide assistance.
* Please be advised that the cover offered via the Society assumes that you will be covered fully on a primary basis – therefore you either need full confirmation explicitly confirming that you are covered from your ‘employer’; or you need to purchase coverage immediately.

Radiographers indemnity insurance, or malpractice insurance as it is also know, provides cover against claims for professional negligence, acts or omissions in the course of your professional duties as a radiographer.
Typical reported claims can include misdiagnosis, injury, or mental or physical harm to a patient. In many cases these are accusations which can be defended by the insurer thus protecting our client’s reputation.
Professional indemnity cover is written on a “claims made” basis, what this effectively means is that you need cover in place when a claim is reported as well as when the medical procedure was carried out. Whilst you maintain insurance throughout your career this is not an issue, but should you cease to practice or retire you will need to arrange run off cover or an extended reporting period.
Our specialist cover for ScOR members provides a three year extended reporting period as standard from the expiry of cover (subject to payment of an additional premium). We can also arrange more extensive run-off programmes and your Advisor will be able to discuss the various options with you.
