Veterinary Practice Insurance FAQs

Why do I need employers' liability insurance?

You are required by law to have employers' liability insurance if your business has employees. The requirement applies irrespective of whether your staff are full time or part time. The insurance covers your legal liability to employees if they are injured at work or become ill as a result of the work they do for you. We cover you in the event of an employee making a claim against your business.

I have given the wrong professional advice. Am I covered for this?

No, your policy does not provide cover for professional negligence. A professional indemnity insurance policy would be required.

Am I covered if my electrical or mechanical equipment breaks down?

Yes, electrical/mechanical breakdown is covered as standard under our policy. This is cover for any loss as a direct result of an accident to machinery or plant. This includes cover for frozen goods cabinet contents up to a maximum £5,000 per claim and cover for reinstating data lost or damaged as a consequence of an accident to computer equipment.

What do I do out of office hours?

All of our customers have access to a 24-hour emergency helpline. Should there be an emergency one of our advisers can help you source professional tradespeople at short notice.
