Tailored insurance for Dietitians

Dietitians insurance includes both Professional Indemnity and Public Liability in one policy. 

Why do Dietitians need Professional Indemnity insurance?

As a Dietitian, you provide advice and counselling about diet, food, and nutrition. Most clients would take on your advice and achieve great results, but there could be a client that claims that your opinion made them eat a plethora of kebabs and fried chicken, giving them diabetes. You could be legally liable and made to pay damages.

Dietitian Indemnity insurance provides cover from malpractice, breach of duty, professional misconduct, professional negligence, and mistakes or omissions claims made against you. A well-chosen policy will also cover legal defence costs, obtained with the Insurer’s prior consent.

Why do Dietitians need Public Liability insurance?

You’re in the business of making people’s lives better, but you can’t stop accidents from happening. Someone could choke on an apple while you're conducting business or on your premises or they could spill a glass of water on their heart monitor causing it to go haywire, and claim it was your fault.

Dietitian Liability insurance acts to protect you from legal liability for claims of injury or property damage made by clients or members of the public. It aims to help you with the cost of claims from a third-party, like compensation payments and legal fees.
