Do I need my own insurance?
Yes. As a self-employed nurse working through Florence you will need to have your own indemnity insurance.
If you are a Nurse working outside of the NHS, having the correct professional indemnity insurance is a legal requirement to maintain your registration. Indemnity insurance helps to cover you for any professional negligence claims or allegations of malpractice.
You are able to get indemnity insurance from a number of sources.
If you're a member of the RCN they will cover your professional actions.
Similarly, there are independent organisations which also provide this insurance, for example UNISON.
