RCN is Welcoming a New Indemnity

The RCN is welcoming a state-backed indemnity. This is a scheme that is going to provide cover to nursing professionals who are working in the NHS. The clinical negligence scheme is going to provide cover to all staff who are working in the NGS and even in England as well. This is going to include practice nurses, self-employed nurses and even trainees too. All nursing staff don’t need to make any payments towards the scheme and they don’t need to register either. Those who work in or even out of hours will also be included.

The new scheme is going to cover any negligence liabilities that may arise from act or even the inability to act. It is going to protect those GP services who relate to diagnosis, care or even treatment. If this results in personal injury or even loss to the patient, then they more than have the right to be covered. Roz Hooper is the RCN head for legal services has stated that the introduction of the health scheme is very important, and it is in fact a welcome development. It is something that they have been calling for quite some time and it also means that NHS patients can now be sure to take out the right standard of cover.

Over the years, the RCN has worked hard to try and make sure that they are willing to support and help those who work in a nurse agency or even in a nursing recruitment agency. Employers often make mistakes regarding their indemnity cover and sometimes staff are left out of this cover altogether. This is not right at all, but if more is done to try and prevent this then everyone will be happier as a result. They will also be given the support that they need.
