CFC launches medical malpractice

We are pleased to announce today that we are expanding our presence in the UK medical malpractice insurance market with the launch of a new product offering.

Bringing much needed capacity to the market and backed 100% by a consortium of Lloyd’s syndicates, our new product is a flexible package that can be tailored to a wide range of healthcare professionals and organisations.

Practice leader Sharon Brennan comments: “The frequency of medical malpractice claims and the cost of defending them are steadily on the rise in the UK, making litigation a key exposure in this sector. Whether at fault or not, healthcare organisations and professionals need clear and concise cover backed by expert underwriters and lawyers who really understand this field. We have designed our product to provide clear, unambiguous cover for medical malpractice, and are able to tailor coverage depending on the client’s distinct needs.”

Public liability, employers’ liability and legal expenses cover are also available under the blended policy. In addition, cyber and privacy cover is offered as an optional extra, protecting against a variety of cyber attacks and data loss scenarios including loss or breach of data held in the cloud, cyber extortion and hack attacks on third parties emanating from the insured’s computer systems.

Our latest product is aimed at a wide range of UK healthcare organisations including affinity groups or schemes and individual professionals. The medical malpractice team has a wealth of experience and can tailor policies to meet specific business needs, so get in touch today.
