Occupational Therapist Registration Requirements

Occupational therapists will be required to re-register with the Health and Care Professions Council later this year, and as part of this, will need to declare that they have suitable indemnity insurance in place.

The City of Edinburgh Council has ‘Officials’ Indemnity’ cover, which addresses the Council’s legal liability for neglect, error or omission by any employee in the performance of their duties, and Professional Indemnity, which caters for the Council’s legal liability for neglect, error or omission by any employee arising from professional services committed in connection with the business. Both policies are subject to normal terms and conditions in relation to Council activities.

This cover has been deemed to be sufficient to meet the Health Care Professions Council requirements. In addition, some professional bodies and trade unions also offer indemnity insurance as part of their membership benefits.

Further information can be found on the Health Care Professions Council website at http://www.hpc-uk.org/registrants/indemnity/
