Hi all,

Long time lurker, first time poster. Thanks for all of your posts so far.

After 9 years of NHS bureaucracy service, I am looking into the possibility of becoming self employed. I've also got the added advantage of being qualified in a couple of electrical areas, too. Has anybody done this, and has any advice for stepping out on your own? Primarily, I'm finding liability insurance to be the biggest obstacle.

It'd be great to hear from anybody that's done this, either successfully or not. Cheers.
