Why use BBi for Medical Indemnity Insurance


50 Year Heritage

It has been known for claims to be brought against medical professionals 10 years or more after retirement, so you need an adviser that is here for the long run. Our 50+ years history highlights we can protect you during and after your career.

Dedicated Support

Our dedicated team of experts will advise on protecting your reputation and livelihood. We provide cover for healthcare practices as well as individual practitioners including; nurses, doctors, dentists, anesthetists, paramedics, surgeons and pharmacists.

Run Off Cover

BBi can arrange run off cover. This is required to protect medical professionals when they retire or are no longer practicing. This will cover any claims that may arise subsequent to the original policy being cancelled.

Choose the right Medical Indemnity Insurance

Medical Professionals

Medical Professionals

Whether or not your employer or regulator insists that you have cover, medical indemnity insurance can provide vital protection for doctors, dentists, consultants etc… when things go wrong, or more importantly, when it is alleged that things have gone wrong.

Health Clinics & Care Homes

Health Clinics & Care Homes

Whether you run a hospital, fertility clinic or nursing home you will have a medical malpractice exposure. No amount of experience, training and corporate governance can prevent mistakes or prevent a patient from alleging that there has been a mistake.

Why do I need cover, and how much do I need?

For most healthcare professionals, it is a regulatory requirement that you have some form of medical malpractice cover, such as GP’s, dentists and surgeons. For others, such as dental nurses and radiographers, it is highly recommended so there is cover to defend an allegation made against you.

Whilst your job will sometimes stipulate amount of indemnity cover you need, bear in mind that this is the minimum. We can provide limits from £250,000 - £10m for individuals.

You will never find an insurance company who will advise you on how much cover you need and this changes as society gets more litigious and people look for compensation when something goes wrong.
