Guild Insurance

Guild Insurance is the preferred insurance provider to AVA members*. Guild works closely with AVA to ensure that the insurance policies on offer keep pace with changes in the profession. Guild is the leading provider of tailored insurance products for healthcare professionals and provides exceptional client service.

Professional indemnity

AVA members receive a premium reduction for professional indemnity insurance provided through Guild Insurance.

For practice owners the reduction is approximately 25%, and for other veterinarians this can be as high as 50%.

This significant reduction reflects the improved risk that AVA members represent due to the broad risk management framework in place between Guild and the AVA. This includes:

  • AVA/Guild Risk Management Committee analysing claims and trends
  • Regular risk management articles through AVA communications
  • Guild/AVA Risk Management Guide for Veterinarians available free to all members
  • Risk management presentations from Guild Insurance and Guild Lawyers at AVA events
  • RiskHQ risk information
  • Seamless access to liability related advice from Guild Lawyers via a duty solicitor.

Other policies

Guild Insurance also offers excellent protection for:

  • Business contents
  • Home and contents
  • Public liability – from accidental bodily injury or property damage arising from your work as a veterinarian
  • Product liability – from goods you have sold or supplied
  • Legal expenses – arising from the defence of claims brought against you
