There has been a number of concerns regarding insurance, primarly surrounding the reduction in the number of companies willing to provide public and employee liability insurance for the care home sector.
We appreciate that the insurance sector has been affected by Covid-19 and has suffered a negative financial impact, but we hope that this will not result in exorbitant price rises for the social care sector in Scotland.
We have become aware that there are a number of insurers who are not willing to take on new clients which is making it very challenging for our members to shop around and get the best deal for their organisations.
Our CEO, Dr Donald Macaskill will be hosting a webinar on Thursday 22nd October at 3:00 PM to discuss insurance issues. He will be joined by Alastair Ross, Assistant Director and Head of Public Policy (Scotland, Wales & NI) and Mark Shepherd, Head of General Insurance Policy of the Association of British Insurers (ABI).
Details to join this webinar session is now available on the Members Area of this website. If you have any problems accessing either the Members Area or the webinar, please contact [email protected].
