What's included in your Art Therapy Insurance policy?

Public Liability

Having a Public Liability cover will ensure you are protected in the case of injury or damage to a third party or their property. You can choose £1 million, £2 million or £5 million worth of Public Liability to add to your policy. If you are sued for negligence your defence costs and any associated settlement would be taken care of.

Professional Indemnity

As with all psychotherapeutic treatments, any advice given to patients to follow at home, which has a negative impact on their well-being, could potentially result in negligence claims. This cover is designed to protect you if a customer alleges that you provided faulty or inadequate advice and services.

Employers' Liability

If you employ any members of staff it is your legal responsibility to take out Employers’ Liability. This will cover you for £10 million should a staff member sustain bodily injury, illness, disease or medically recognised psychiatric injury whilst working under your employment.

Optional Equipment Cover

Our policy can include up to £3,000 worth of equipment cover, protecting you against damage, loss and theft of the tools. Simply select the level of cover and it will be added to your policy.
