RCN indemnity scheme

Information about our indemnity scheme including our most commonly asked questions. The scheme may cover you against the financial consequences of a claim against you for clinical negligence.

Employee

If you are employed, you do not need the RCN indemnity scheme.  Your employer has vicarious liability (is responsible) for your actions and omissions and should provide appropriate cover for you.

Please discuss your indemnity arrangements with your employer and come back to us if there are any problems.

Please read the indemnity document for more information about employment status.

Student

Please speak to your university and placement provider. In the majority of cases they will provide your indemnity cover.

If they do not cover you, our scheme may apply as long as you meet the terms and conditions.

Please read the indemnity document in full for more information.
