Liabilities to Third Parties Scheme


Our Liabilities to Third Parties Scheme (LTPS) typically covers employers’ and public liability claims from NHS staff, patients and members of the public. These range from straightforward slips and trips to serious workplace manual handling, bullying and stress claims. LTPS covers claims arising from breaches of the Human Rights Act, the Data Protection Act and the Defective Premises Act, as well as defamation, unlawful detention and professional negligence claims.

LTPS also extends to cover the personal liabilities of the members of NHS boards, including non-executive directors. Personal injury cover is unlimited in value and there is no limit on the number of claims members may make in any membership year.
