What is nutritionist and dietitian Insurance?

Our Professional Indemnity insurance (PI) for nutritionists and dietitians has been written with your industry-specific risks in mind to provide the protection you need should a claim arise as a result of your advice.

Why do nutritionists and dietitians need insurance?

The world of nutrition, diet and healthy eating moves at a fast pace. New theories regarding what food is good for you and what isn’t are published almost daily, rendering some well-known theories redundant and seen as old hat.

If a nutritionist is imparting their advice based on outdated information, they could be recommending improper or ineffective treatments to their clients. Their advice is followed by their clients because the client trusts them to be the expert in their field. Hence why it is important for diet and nutrition professionals to ensure they are covered in case of a claim of negligence advice is made against them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our Professional Indemnity insurance for nutritionists and dietitians provides cover for claims made for losses arising from a breach of their professional duty including negligent advice.

Examples of how insurance will help you include:

Professional negligence
Poor advice that causes your client a financial loss, such as a subscription-based diet plan that promises weight loss, but does not help you client lose weight. The client sues you for the money they have spent saying the plan and your nutritional advice is flawed. Professional Indemnity insurance would respond to provide cover for your legal costs in this instance.

Accidental injury and/or property damage
Accidental personal injury caused to a client of your who is visiting your premises. Or damage to a clients’ property while you are in a meeting with them. Public Liability insurance would respond to provide cover for your legal costs in this instance.

Caunce O’Hara’s quick online quote and buy system will show you a quote for your insurance in a few minutes.

An example quote: as a nutritionist with an annual turnover of up to £50,000 per annum, with a £500,000 indemnity limit in any one claim, you would pay as little as £192.00 per annum for professional indemnity insurance, which we think is great value considering the cover and peace of mind that you benefit from (Figure correct as of 23.11.2021).
