Practice Cover offer a flexible approach to locum insurance, meaning all policies can be specifically tailored to your needs and offer great value to you or your practice. Your premium will be based on:

  • The level of cover needed by you or your practice.
  • The number of people who need insurance. If there are more than two then you are eligible for a group discount.
  • Whether you opt to have continuity of cover.
  • The weekly sum insured. You can choose between £200 to £3000* per week.
  • The length of your deferment period. This can be from 2 to 26 weeks.
  • The length of your chosen benefit period. This is usually 52 weeks, but you may opt for a shorter period if required.

*Benefits in excess of £3,000 per week can be considered on request.

Employee absence due to illness or otherwise can have a real impact on GP practices. As locums can cost up to £350 a session**, it can be extremely costly to find temporary replacement for an employee, which can therefore have a negative impact on your practice’s finances. While it’s difficult to avoid the risk of employee absence, or influence the cost of a locum, you can mitigate against the risk by having appropriate insurance in place.

Many GP practices are now using locum insurance as a key part of their risk management planning, an important factor to ensure the minimum possible damage to the practice.

You are pleasant to deal with, reward loyalty and do not penalise an ageing but healthy practitioner because of his age!

I would like to say how pleased I was with my Practice Cover locum insurance when I had to claim last year, for 2 different illnesses. I was off work for a few months earlier in the year and again for a shorter period over Christmas and new year. Each time, I found it very straightforward and my questions were answered quickly and you kept me up to date. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your locum insurance to other GPs. Thanks for your help. I am very pleased with your service & your prompt action!

It is one of those policies you take out never dreaming you will need to use .... locum insurance. But I would like to say a big thank you to Practice Cover, at a time you are feeling very vulnerable they were extremely supportive and understanding and very efficient. The paperwork was easy to fill in and continuation claims easy to submit. I moved to them from another company who wouldn't cover me. I would definitely recommend them and strongly advise everyone should consider having this cover - not having to worry about finance at a time when there are more important things to consider is so valuable.

The Partners at our Surgery were impressed by Lynda Cox (Director) who visited the surgery and gave a comprehensive presentation of the cover provided by the Practice Cover Locum insurance Policy; the premiums quoted, for this permanent cover were thousands of pounds cheaper than our existing insurer Wesleyan. We are very happy with the product and service we have received from Practice Cover.

An independent company with a focus on service as well as value. I particularly like the options for annual cover or permanent cover which I've not seen anywhere else.
