COVID-19: Information regarding BADN Indemnity Scheme

We have received a number of enquiries from members regarding their return to work and whether they will be covered under their professional indemnity taken out with Trafalgar Risk Management via our Indemnity Scheme. In light of the pandemic and government guidelines, please see below, a note from Trafalgar on current position of our BADN Indemnity Scheme:

In light of lifting of some working restrictions and the potential for individuals to return to work, insurers are in the process of understanding the legal environment to ensure compliance with Government guidelines. We will provide some formal guidance in the very near future, so please bear with us whilst insurers complete their enquiries.

Until then, our insurers are happy for dental nurses to continue to work in emergency dental practices only, for the activities covered under the policy wording and within the GDC Scope of Practice. The policy wording can be found on the Important information page of our website at
