What we cover you for

Medical indemnity insurance cover includes acts or omissions in the course of your professional duties. This can include injury, misdiagnosis, delays in referral, physical or mental harm to a patient. It doesn’t cover against incidents that occurred before the life of your policy.

Protection against unsuccessful claims

Our insurance is designed to protect you through your claim, even if unsuccessful. This means that even the legal fees arising from defending an unsuccessful claim can be covered, excluding any claim for treatment undertaken under NHS Trust Indemnity or its equivalent.

'Run off' cover

We can approach our insurers with a view to providing retrospective cover. In order to ensure your past work is protected. As due to the statute of limitation, a patient has up to 3 years to make a claim, from the time they become aware of the error, and then another 3 years from the point they intimate a claim. Therefore it is important you’re protected during this time regardless of if you are working or not.
