    Just remember - it also provides Clinical Indemnity Insurance - this is a key benefit for professionals who are subject to potential 'Fitness to Practice' actions - without IMPACT membership you would have to fund any legal costs associated with defending yourself. The cost of securing professional insurance indemnity privately would be much greater.
