Indemnity Insurance
14th March 2014


Schools employing school nurses should be aware that due to a change in EU Law it is mandatory for a nurse from early in 2014 to have indemnity insurance. This is normally paid for by the employer. First aid cover is not enough for nurses as they carry out clinical tasks as a part of their job description. The RCN has changed its provision and the NMC are making it a part of a nurses requirement for registration. The following links should help to explain the issue www.rcn.org.uk/support/legal/indemnityscheme
