Robust legal expenses insurance protection for care industry businesses
The care sector is a vital part of the UK social infrastructure. Businesses such as care homes, GP surgeries, fostering and private medical organisations. Growth in the sector has been continuous – it was valued at £4.9bn in 2020.
