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.
Dietitians Indemnity insurance is designed to protect you if something goes wrong while you’re with a client, it includes cover against a wide range of risks like claims of professional negligence.2
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 enter your company and slip on an apple core that didn’t quite make it to the bin. The person could seek to hold you liable for any injury they received or damage to their property from said apple core.
Dietitian Liability insurance provides cover for legal liabilities if a member of the public makes a claim that they were injured, or damage was caused to their property because of your business dealings or on your premises.2
