Working as a clinical dietitian or nutritionist can be incredibly enjoyable and fulfilling vocation, especially when you’re working on a freelance or contract basis in a hospital, clinic, long-term care facility or other such institution as it enables you to do the work you love on your own terms.
However, while you might love the flexibility, it’s also important to make sure you have the right nutritionist insurance that offers coverage to help your career flourish.
In 2014, the UK government introduced legislation which requires all professionals registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to be covered by professional indemnity insurance. If you practise without dietitian insurance you will be breaking the law.
From protecting yourself against allegations or negligence to covering yourself in the event of illness, Caunce O’Hara can help you build a tailored insurance policy for your circumstances.
