For those of you who may not know, at Incision, we have been providing specialist medical indemnity insurance to surgeons with private practice in the UK since 2010 and we are now pleased to announce that we have branched out to include all medical professionals too!

At conception, working with surgeons, we spent years researching the unique exposures that specialist consultants face on a day-to-day basis and set ourselves a target to provide our future members with the most comprehensive insurance cover possible, at the most competitive price that we could.

As a consequence, we realised that none of the wordings provided by the underwriters cut the mustard, so we set about writing our own bespoke policy wording to ensure these coverages were met…12 years later and we are still dedicated to keeping up-to-date with, and ahead of, the unique coverages that surgeons require. This is under constant review to make sure that it addresses present-day exposures and insurance requirements (such as the recent increase in remote working, for example).

We have an amazing team in place who provide assistance on insurance, education, and risk management, as well as provide a 24/7 in-house medico-legal team for best practices and claims support.

So, given our expertise in this space, it seemed like a natural step for Incision to extend our reach to provide medical indemnity coverage to the wider medical community – and we are pleased to share that we can now include medical professionals and private clinics in our offering.

Given that our surgeon members work with all sorts of medical professionals every day, and with many of you also owning private medical entities/clinics, (requiring a separate policy to provide protection from vicarious liability claims), we hope that we can add another level of assistance to you.

It’s an exciting journey and we are looking forward to growing Incision’s depth of resources further so please let us know if you have any ideas or suggestions to help us improve our service to you.

In the meantime, we invite you to check out our new website and let your friends and colleagues know too. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like further information.
