Medical Malpractice

Increasingly complicated medical procedures, more frequent litigation and the ever changing delivery of healthcare mean you need support from insurers who understand your sector inside out. 

Our Medical Malpractice policy covers medical professionals for claims arising from a failure to provide medical treatment or negligence when providing medical treatment.

Long-term commitment

QBE has focused on Medical Malpractice for more than 20 years, offering clients genuine stability. This long-term commitment is crucial because claims can take many years to come to light. If you are accused of negligence in years to come, you want an insurer who is still in business and can help you to resolve any claims.

Open for business

We have a broad appetite and there are very few risks we cannot cover. We accommodate our customers’ needs wherever possible and take a flexible, innovative approach to programme structures – for example, in terms of deductibles or the level of client retention.

Combined cover

We have the ability to package Medical Malpractice cover with other useful covers, such as Public Liability (including abuse), Product Liability, Employers’ Liability, Property and Motor Fleet

Broad client base worldwide

Our experience means we are able to help a wide range of clients around the world, from regional health authorities to hospitals, clinics, residential care providers, medical practitioners, primary care providers, medical affinity groups and allied healthcare companies.

Managing your risks

Healthcare clients can benefit from QBE’s wide-ranging risk management services. We work closely with our customers to minimise the likelihood of having a loss, including regularly sharing knowledge and helping you to identify risks and take practical steps to manage them.

Proactive claims support

Our local Claims teams in the UK, Canada and Australia take a proactive approach. For example, if you’re involved in an incident that might give rise to a claim, we manage it actively so that you and the potential claimant receive the best advice as soon as possible. If someone brings a fraudulent claim against you, we will robustly defend your position.
