Why do Locums need Medical Indemnity?
The Medical Locum Industry in the UK has rapidly expanded over the last 10 years. 50% of the UK’s Medical Professional workforce has now carried out Locum work either within a NHS setting or within a Private Practice. *
So do Medical Locums need Medical Indemnity?
Yes, as Medical Indemnity is a legal requirement to practice within the UK. However, where you receive your indemnity is dependent on where you are carrying out Locum work.
