The healthcare landscape continues to be challenging for organisations, whether large or small. Through working with organisations like yours, Healthcare Protection has developed specialist knowledge of the medical malpractice market.
Insuring with Healthcare Protection’s medical malpractice insurance gives your organisation access to professional malpractice protection.

Our product is designed to protect UK private sector healthcare and dental organisations providing treatments, advice and services.
Benefits of our medical malpractice insurance policy
Tailor your insurance policy
We know that all healthcare organisations' needs are different which is why you can tailor your insurance policy by including any of the additional options listed below.
Medicolegal or dentolegal protection
- Defence costs for legal proceedings brought against your organisation by a regulatory authority eg CQC.
- Representation at a coroner’s inquest (or equivalent) and all legal costs incurred in relation to the investigation.
- Criminal proceedings under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 (or jurisdiction specific equivalent) arising from the death of a patient or client.
- Support with out of pocket expenses when required to attend court or a regulatory hearing.
With our medicolegal or dentolegal protection you will also benefit from access to the professional advice line provided by MPS (available Monday to Friday 08.30 to 17.30). This allows you to speak to a consultant to discuss medicolegal or dentolegal issues or to seek advice on how to prevent a concern or problem escalating.
Public relations (PR) support
Specialist media relations advice to help you deal with media enquiries, draft statements on your behalf, and provide assistance in helping you to avert or mitigate any risks to your company relating to claims.
This advice may be provided by our own experienced in-house media relations team or, occasionally, by expert third party consultants to ensure your personal needs are met.
Retroactive cover is added to your policy to pick up claims from activity carried out by your organisation prior to the policy start date. It extends cover back to the date specified on your schedule.
