We have in place a Fitness to Practice facility, underwritten with Hiscox SA. This policy will provide cover in the event of complaint being made against you with CORU.
Summary of Cover:

• No policy excess
On notification of a complaint, you must immediately contact the Helpline on +3531 2381810 If you contact CORU prior to your Insurance company there is a danger the Insurance company will void your policy.
Your Insurance policies are only valid in conjunction with membership of the AOTI being held at the same time and should a claim come in we are required to provide our certificate along with your proof of membership to the insurance company.
