Update on death in service indemnity cover – students on supernumerary placement

We have been made aware of an update relating to students on supernumerary placement in health and care settings.

In order to provide students and their families peace of mind at this time, the Scottish Government has confirmed that it will provide a temporary COVID-19 related death in service scheme to students of Higher Education Institutes on clinical placements in health and social care settings. This provides a single lump sum payment of £60,000 to the next of kin of any student of a higher education institute, should the worst happen.

The cover is now in place and further detail on the scheme will be circulated next week. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch via the CNOD Education mailbox: [email protected]
