General Dental Council regulations now require all new and renewing GDC registrants to state that they have appropriate indemnity cover in place. Are you covered?

We know that purchasing an indemnity can be expensive, that's why we have, in conjunction with long-term partner, Trafalgar Risk Management launched a BADN Indemnity Scheme exclusive to our member to help you get covered for less. Our membership is an ultimate tool to help you save money, not spend it!

What is BADN Indemnity Scheme?

Created in partnership with Trafalgar Risk Management, the scheme offers an opportunity to apply for professional indemnity cover at a preferential premium fee for BADN members only. This is however, an optional feature and is not included in the price of the membership. Additional costs will apply.

Who can apply?

The scheme is accessible only with the following memberships:

  • Full-Time membership
  • Part-Time membership
  • Maternity membership

How to apply?

The BADN Indemnity Scheme fees (visible above) are available exclusively to BADN members only. You will have the opportunity to apply for indemnity right after successfully purchasing or renewing your BADN membership. Once you've joined the association by purchasing on of three memberships (mentioned above) you will find access button at the order confirmation, directing you to BADN Indemnity Scheme and continuing your application.

If you've already joined the association and missed the opportunity to apply for indemnity at the time of purchasing your membership, you will need to contact us directly in order to gain the access to this indemnity offer.

The discounted premium fees will not apply if you're not active current member or try to apply directly through the Trafalgar Risk Management website. This can only be accessed through our members' area.
