Here are some useful FAQs on the subject of Medical Defence Insurance:

  • Medical Defence Unions do not provide insurance, their indemnity agreements are honoured only as far as this is beneficial to all Union members.
  • Malpractice Insurance will protect you against allegations of bodily injury, if you give professional advice or training you may also need Medical Professional Indemnity Insurance.
  • It is recommended you complete a Medical Defence Insurance proposal form to apply for a quotation. A well completed form will assist insurers to provide a fair quotation of terms.
  • Medical Malpractice insurance is normally insured on an Aggregate basis, so ensure you carefully consider how much cover you may require,
  • Professional Indemnity Insurance and some other specific insurances are normally insured on a claims made basis, meaning cover is only available under a policy currently in force. You should not terminate or allow this cover to lapse without putting some period of ‘run-off’ cover in place.
