wheelchair and public liability insurance

We've recently been informed that we need insurance for our 11 year old daughter who uses an electric wheelchair. Apparently because the chair was purchased by a charity rather than the NHS (even though she was assessed by an NHS OT  who said the NHS wouldn't provide one so would have to approach a charity) we could be sued if she injures anyone. Does anyone have advice about this? We've had the chair 4 months and this is the first we've heard about it.
