The Department's review "The regulation of non-medical healthcare professions" made reference to the fact that professional indemnity cover is becoming a condition of registration for all professions. The introduction of compulsory professional indemnity cover for midwives will require secondary legislation. A three-month public consultation will form part of that legislative process. No date for this has yet been set.
