The range and complexity of services delivered by the Public Sector in more recent years has never been greater. Be it joint partnerships with other Councils or the NHS, to taking a more prominent role in the delivery of front line services.
This change has inevitably lead to a a blurring of the traditional roles and in turn boundaries between Health and Social Services staff with many employees now potentially finding themselves engaged in tasks which were once perceived the domain of Health Care employees.
It is imperative therefore that such employees can go about their roles in the safe knowledge that they have the most appropriate insurance protection in place and in turn the best claims team to deal with any situations which may arise.
In pulling together a tight jigsaw of cover between our Public Liability and Medical Malpractice covers we wanted to take the opportunity and setting out this interaction in one document, and confirming that the cover provided by the Public Liability policy has not been diluted or reduced, but rather the Medical Malpractice policy has taken responsibility for the additional risks created.
Our Decision Tree outlines which treatments we are able to provide cover for together with a Treatment Table showing specific treatments in alphabetical order. It is important to note that this is a guide only and any specific enquiry should be channelled through your RMP Account Director.
Depending on the circumstances (i.e. where we have a ‘no’ on the treatment table) a Local Authority may require cover under our separate Medical Malpractice Policy.
