Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice insurance (or Medical Malpractice Liability Insurance) is designed for healthcare professionals to protect them in the event of any allegations of medical malpractice or clinical negligence.

At Lothbury UK, we recognise the increasingly complicated nature of medical procedures, the ever changing delivery of healthcare and the more frequent litigation this can bring. Support from brokers and insurers, who understand your sector inside out, is more important now than ever! Long term commitment is crucial because claims can take many years to come to light.

Lothbury UK are able to provide bespoke insurance solutions for every facet of the medical profession, placed with specialist underwriters with unrivalled knowledge of the medical sector. Our wordings are offered on a ‘claims made’ basis which, put simply, means your policy will respond to claims submitted whilst the policy is active, no matter when the alleged incident occurred.

Worldwide coverage is available and we aim to take a flexible, innovative approach to programme structures to provide boutique policies for private services, NHS services, and individual practitioners.
