Professional Liability Insurance for ACPAT Members

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.

The policy is underwritten by RSA and provides run off cover at no extra charge when members retire or cease to practice.

Options include Employers 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 Employers Liability option to cover liabilities resulting from injuries to students in members care)
