Why do you need Sonographer Insurance/Sonographer Medical Indemnity?

Medical staff use expertise and give advice on a daily basis, sometimes that advice can go wrong or the patient may feel that the advice caused a problem, even if there was no fault. This can give rise to a claim or assertion of financial liability against the practitioner for their perceived negligence.  Ultrasound Insurance covers the defence of allegations and , if you are found liable, any award of damages up to the limit of insurance.

If I am an employee or self-employed status working for another company, do I still need cover?

The Law regarding employment is complex and even though your employer is generally vicariously liable for your actions, you might find that your employer seeks to avoid liability, especially if you do not comply with the full terms of your employment.

What is Retro cover, why do I need it?

Sonographer Insurance cover is a claims made policy, meaning you are insured for claims or allegations made against you and notified to insurers during the policy period. Cover IS NOT linked to the date of the activity that caused the potential damage. A retroactive cover date is applied to your policy which excludes any activities undertaken prior to the ‘retro’ date. Because Society of Radiographers Members can demonstrate they have been previously insured under the Society scheme, Insurers will consider retroactive cover back to the date of commencement of the applicant’s SoR membership.

What is an Extended Reporting Period Cover?

When you cease practice, risk of claims does not cease as there can be allegations relating to your past activities that come about in the future. Since Sonographer Insurance is a claims made policy, all cover ceases when it is not renewed. Therefore, to avoid cover lapsing when you cease practice, policies have an option to purchase and extended reporting period during which claims can be notified after the policy expiry.
