We know there are many things to consider in relation to protecting your professional self and your business practice, which includes your Medical Malpractice protection.

Professional Dental Indemnity is an Introducer Appointed Representative of Howden Insurance Brokers Limited, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority in respect of general insurance business.

We are remunerated by Howden Insurance Brokers Limited for any introductions made by us, which lead to customers entering into a contract of insurance arranged by Howden Insurance Brokers Limited.

In these increasingly litigious times it is vital that you can rely on your indemnity provider, so there are a number of questions you might be considering in relation to this important protection:

  • Do I understand the difference between the discretionary nature of Medical Defence Organisations and the contract certain nature of insurance policies, and have I considered which may be most suitable for my needs?
  • Do I understand what the pricing and proposition differential look like between MDOs and insurance policies?
  • Do I fully understand the differences between insurance policies that offer ‘Claims Made’ cover and those that offer ‘Claims Occurring’ cover, and have I considered which type best suits my needs?
  • Do I understand that different policies may have different run-off cover terms and conditions, which may or may not provide cover for the time when I may take a break from, or even cease, practicing?
  • Did I consider all of the above when I selected my existing insurance policy and, if not, should I test or review my existing arrangement to ensure that I can make an informed decision going forward?
