The MPI Group is a speciality specific medical defence organisation, arranging professional indemnity insurance for doctors practising in the UK and including an in-house medico-legal and legal advisory service. We currently support a number of bespoke Schemes for doctors in the following specialities; ENT surgery, general surgery, gynaecology, ophthalmology, orthopaedics and trauma surgery, plastic surgery and urology. We also assist a number of direct members of the MPI Group outside the Schemes.
Our product is different. Working in partnership with the Clinical Boards, we bring together a single team of doctors, lawyers, brokers and underwriters all striving to achieve the best outcome for our members. Unlike the traditional medical defence organisations who tend to offer discretionary assistance on an occurrence basis, our product provides contractual certainty on a claims made basis. As long as you comply with the terms and conditions of your policy, you can be sure that you will be protected if you subsequently face a clinical negligence claim, GMC investigation, or other legal process arising from your practice of medicine.
In 2010, our predecessor company was set up by two innovative doctors, themselves former medico-legal advisers at one of the established Medical Defence Organisations. The Medical Professional Indemnity Group was born in 2016, initially as a joint venture with a firm of insurance brokers and then wholly owned by those brokers. We are now a division of Gallagher, an award winning firm of insurance brokers with offices throughout the UK. We are based in the heart of the City of London and so we have access to the broadest range of expertise provided by major national underwriters.
Our ethos is simple. “Insuring your future, Ensuring you’re protected” mirrors our desire to offer the highest quality professional medical indemnity insurance product to our members coupled with 24/7 medico-legal support. As our specialist brokers and medico-legal advisers operate from the same location, we can resolve any issues quickly and efficiently. The medico-legal service is led by a healthcare solicitor with over twenty years’ experience defending doctors.
