Medical Malpractice – Establishments

Medical Malpractice Insurance is essential protection for those operating medical establishments at risk of breaching their professional duty of care. Cover provides for potential significant legal costs and settlements as a shield for financial loss. Medical Malpractice Insurance complements the separate insurance cover available for medical practitioners (doctors).

Typically a Medical Malpractice insurance policy is designed for healthcare establishments, practices and clinics including:

• complimentary medicine clinics
• day surgeries
• imaging and diagnostic clinics
• IVF clinics
• medical centres
• pathology labs
• Private Hospitals
• Home Nursing Services
• Day Surgeries
• Optometrists
• Medical Centres • Podiatrists
• Rehabilitation Centres

and other medical facilities

Medical Malpractice – Practitioner’s Defence Cover

We can access some Medical Defence Unions that provide Medical Malpractice insurance for individual Medical Practitioners and Medical Students. While most practitioners prefer to deal direct with their Medical Defence Union as a member, it is possible for us to arrange this cover for you which has the particular advantage of arranging this in conjunction with your other insurances such as the Medical Establishment and Property Insurance for your rooms or clinic. We can be there to not only make sure your cover is arranged but be there to support any claims on your behalf. We are your “One Stop Shop” for insurance arrangements.

Who can help?

An insurance broker's role is to act as your representative and work in your interests, seeking the best cover at the best price for you with their skill, market knowledge and experience. Call a good one.
