Medical Malpractice - Establishments

CPR Insurance Services are able to arrange, place and manage all your Medical Malpractice Insurance requirements.

There are three types of categories of Medical Malpractice which are:

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
• Chemists
• Radiology Practices
• Laser Eye Surgeries
• Pathology Laboratories
• Natural Therapists
• Nursing Homes and Retirement Villages
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.

Will you lose the value of a Broker?

If you listen to the Podcast on this link you will here Robert Cooper explain to his Accountant why Small Business stands to lose if Insurance Brokers are not there to advise start up businesses and established businesses about the risks their occupation carries and how they can deal with them. Simply because they will not want to pay the fees that would be charged. Currently instead, Insurance Companies pay the Broker after the Insurance has been placed with them. Perhaps the premiums will appear a bit cheaper in the first year? Then they will question the fees an Insurance Broker puts on top and finds they can go to the Internet and obtain the same cover at the same price. However, they will not have the constant advice and claims advocacy that comes with an Insurance Broker. The big loser is definitely the Consumer as direct insurers give absolutely no advice, only price.

It is the third accolade for CPR Insurance Services in a month and after seven and a half years in business is a real pep up for the company.

For Robert, it is the culmination of many years experience, becoming well qualified, experiencing the highs and lows of a career and always wanting to contribute to his community. Sometimes, these things just come together and you receive recognition for your efforts.

Robert says that there is no doubt that starting your own business is a huge challenge, but with the right research and planning, the right people around you and a good set of values that you apply to the vision of the company, you have a very good chance of making it all succeed.

Robert says he is lucky. He has a strong supportive Wife, Mandy, who is also part of the business, along with efficient and hard working staff such as Julia McLauchlan and Aidan Harmer who are building up their own skills in a learning environment. 

However, the most important and most supportive people for CPR Insurance Services are our clients who have stuck by us and supported us over the past seven years. Our focus remains on providing the best possible service we can and always acting in their best interests. To all our clients, we say thank you!
