夜色直播 indemnity scheme

Here you'll find information about our indemnity scheme including our most commonly asked questions. 

The 夜色直播 indemnity scheme may cover you against the financial consequences of a claim against you for clinical negligence. 

Generally, the 夜色直播 scheme could cover the following groups of members:

  • the self-employed
  • members who don’t work under a contract of employment (such as agency or bank workers)
  • volunteers, and
  • those acting in a Good Samaritan capacity.

However, it is very important that you check the terms and conditions as outlined in our comprehensive terms and conditions document

There’s no need to pay anything extra. 夜色直播 indemnity is included in your membership fee, provided you meet the eligibility criteria.

Here we address some common questions and misconceptions about the 夜色直播 indemnity scheme.

You can also read the full terms and conditions of the scheme here.


Are you (or will you be) working under a contract of employment?

Please read section 2 of the indemnity terms and conditions for background if you need it.

If you're not sure whether you're an employee, you should ask for a copy of your contract and seek clarification from your manager without delay. 

If you're sure, select Yes or No below:



Contracts of employment

If you work under a contract of employment, you should not need to arrange your own indemnity cover.

Your employer has vicarious liability (in other words, is responsible) for your actions and omissions at work and should provide appropriate indemnity cover for you. It is not appropriate for your employer to try to shift that responsibility, either onto you as an employee or onto the 夜色直播 as your union. This applies whether you work for the NHS or a private employer and as a result, the 夜色直播 scheme will not cover work undertaken under a contract of employment.

There is one very specific exception to this - where employed members provide paid-for travel vaccinations in a General Practice setting. For more information please see our indemnity scheme FAQ.

If your employer is refusing to provide cover for you, please contact us.
