2. Full members must have public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance cover with:
a. minimum per incident bloodstock cover up to £10,000 (or higher if you work with bloodstock horses above this value).
b. minimum per incident non-bloodstock cover up to £500,000
c. minimum per incident product liability cover up to £500,000 (unless no products are supplied as part of the practice).
