We have just renegotiated our Professional Indemnity Insurance policy for you. The good news is that the cover remains the same and there continues to be no excess.
We tried again for the addition of employee midwives being covered during the birthing procedure. The underwriter did offer terms this year, however at a cost!
It would have meant that these midwife members would have to be charged more than the QNMU currently charge.
Still, a vast improvement as last year we were considered too small. So we are moving forward.
Please apologise to your midwife colleagues on our behalf. Many have contacted us and told us they will be leaving the QNMU just as soon as the cover is available, so we know we are letting them down. It will certainly be available next year as the increase in our membership numbers will justify the addition with the underwriters.
By 1 December 2018 the details of our cover will be on our website in a new format. Rather than show a complicated policy document that no one can understand we have had our brokers provide a summary of what is and what is not covered. It is lot simpler and easier to understand and access.
Thank you for your continued support.
