4. Professional indemnity

4.1

Membership of The Society of Radiographers provides access to the benefit of personal professional indemnity for their practice provided that members work in accordance with this scope of practice and in accordance with the SCoR Code of Conduct and Ethics.8

4.2

For the avoidance of doubt, professional indemnity does not extend to those services provided by some members which are not within their professional role. For example, a radiographer may also be a qualified acupuncturist. Where acupuncture is an integral part of the diagnostic or therapeutic radiography role, this falls within the individual’s scope of practice (and so is indemnified) but where acupuncture is practised independently of the diagnostic or therapeutic radiography role, it is considered to be outside the individual’s scope of radiographic practice. Similarly, the use of Botox injections may also be an integral part of their role; this falls within the individual’s scope of practice (and so is indemnified) but where injection of Botox is practised independently of the professional role, it is considered to be outside the individual’s scope of practice.
