Undertaking one of our placements overseas carries with it a degree of risk and you must pay for and be protected by comprehensive travel insurance and professional indemnity insurance cover.
We are happy to assist you with organizing your insurance, but ensuring that you are covered is your responsibility and We accept no responsibility if for any reason you are not covered by your insurance in the event of any loss, illness, injury or otherwise (provided such injury does not relate to an act or omission by Us). In particular: (a) You must obtain appropriate travel insurance to cover you for the period of your placement and provide full details of this insurance to us at least one month prior to the commencement of your placement; and (b) You must have in place appropriate professional indemnity insurance cover for the duration of the Placement that will indemnify and hold harmless Us, the hospital or other Placement setting and its employees, servants and agents against all liabilities, costs, expenses, losses including but not limited to any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal costs (calculated on a full indemnity basis) and all other reasonable professional costs and expenses), damages, injuries or judgements in any way caused by your negligence or wrongdoing provided you are working under the supervision of an appropriately qualified practitioner and provide full details of this insurance to us at least one month prior to the commencement of your placement.
Whilst every effort is made to make sure all accommodation is safe and secure, We recommend that you do not have in excess of US$100 of currency (either US$ or the equivalent in such other local currency) at any time either in your possession, or kept at your accommodation and We recommend that you take no other valuables with you to your placement. If you do decide to take valuables with you to your placement, it is your responsibility to make sure that your insurance properly covers such valuables. There are cash machines located within a short distance of each of the locations of the placements and we recommend that you take small amounts of cash out at regular intervals rather than carry excess amounts of cash with you whilst on your placement. We accept no responsibility for loss or damage to your property during your placement provided such loss or damage is not by reason of your negligence.
