The SOM are offering new insurance-based indemnity policy for nurses who work in occupational health and who are SOM members. Nurses have been legally obliged to have indemnity cover since the Government introduced the requirement for all healthcare professionals in July 2014. The Nursing and Midwifery Code: Standards of conduct, performance and ethics for nurses and midwives was updated to make appropriate indemnity arrangements mandatory for nurses.
