Domiciliary Care insurance
As part of our ability to insure medical professionals we have also got access to be able to insure domiciliary care agencies. We understand that domiciliary care is important to a lot of people in the community. And know how important it is that these businesses are able to continue to operate. It is also a requirement by the CQC that all domiciliary care agencies have insurance in place before they begin to operate. Insurance is a fundamental part of their business as without it agencies are unable to operate as stated in the guidance notes from the CQC website relating to regulation 13(a).
The CQC are the Care Quality Commission that are responsible for ensuring the quality of care across the UK. All agencies are subject to monitoring and inspections from the CQC and insurance is compulsory for agencies to be complicit with their regulations. For any domiciliary care agency, it is important that they are CQC complicit as this will have an impact on their rating, and therefore impact on their ability to gain clients or even contracts.
It is common for us to insure domiciliary care agencies and have done so on many occasions. We aim to provide our clients with an easy to use service to ensure that they are able to get cover in place and can continue with their work in a timely manner without having to wait around. We simply ask you to fill in a proposal form and once this is completed and returned we can proceed to get you a quote. This is then communicated back to you. Should the quote meet your needs we will be more than happy to bind this for you.
