DSC arranges cover for significant numbers of Consultants, Therapists and Teachers working with Parents and Babies

What is covered?

The standard cover provided is Professional Liability incorporating Malpractice & Public/Products Liability to an indemnity limit of £7m and written on a ‘losses occurring’ basis (£1m for Sling Libraries and Peer Supporters).

The scheme policy is an annual contract available for residents of Great Britain and all Ireland and automatically provides cover throughout these countries and temporarily working overseas (excluding USA & Canada and territories under their jurisdiction).

It indemnifies the therapist’s legal liabilities to third parties, including the clients/patients in their charge. It protects the therapist against errors or omissions that might give rise to accidental damage to, or loss of property, or injury to persons – but only ‘pays out’ when it can be established that the therapist is ‘legally’ liable.
