Medical Indemnity insurance
All private sector health services such as private GP and private hospital requires any locum doctor working for them to be fully indemnified.
All Locum doctors working as an independent contractor rather than on the hospital payroll need to ensure that they are fully covered for all situations.
Most of public facilities already provide a level of medical indemnity cover for any doctors that are paid via their payroll system. However, it is highly recommended that you speak to your indemnity insurance provider to ensure that you will be covered regardless of the situation.
