The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy

As a member of The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy (ACPAT) you can benefit from our bespoke professional liability insurance scheme, designed specifically for physiotherapists in animal therapy.

This cover provides Medical and Professional Liability insurance to protect members against claims for wrongful advice or treatments arising from your work as an animal physiotherapist. This cover does not include Public Liability insurance, as this is provided separately as part of CSP membership insurance. Students (Cat B Members) must be under the supervision of a qualified member (Cat A) or veterinary surgeon.

Options include Employer’s Liability insurance in respect of students or employees in your care and corporate entity cover where services are delivered through a partnership or private limited company.

Important Notes
  • This scheme is only available where both ACPAT and CSP membership is held at the same time
  • Category A members are insured whilst teaching / training Category B student members (however it is advisable to select the employer’s liability option to cover liabilities resulting from injuries to students in members care)
  • The limit on bloodstock claims is £500,000 in any period of insurance (definition of bloodstock available on request
  • Separate rates available on request for corporate entities (e.g. partnerships or private limited companies)
  • Separate terms are available for non ACPAT members, or anyone practicing outside the scope of animal physiotherapy

Non-animal therapy activities
(such as human physiotherapy and other complementary therapies)

Members may purchase separate insurance to cover healthcare work outside their animal physiotherapy scope of practice.
