Our individual tailored approach provides the contractual security of an insurance contract regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. This provides contractual certainty. Membership of a Medical Defence Organisation provides access to membership benefits entirely at the discretion of the membership organisation. Examples of memoranda & articles are below:
MDU Memorandum and Articles of Association clause 45 (3), powers of the Board of Management:
"Any such advice or legal assistance or defence may be granted or terminated by resolution of the Board of Management or any authorised committee or decision of any authorised agent and the giving of advice or legal assistance or defence in every case shall be made only upon such terms and conditions as the Board of Management committee or agent shall think proper and it shall rest only in the absolute discretion of the Board of Management committee or agent in every case to limit or restrict the giving of such advice or legal assistance or defence or altogether to decline to give the same or to terminate any advice or legal assistance or defence so given without assigning any reason."
MPS Memorandum and Articles of Association clause 40 (1), Discretionary Indemnity:
"An indemnity pursuant to clause 3(E) of the memorandum of association of the Society may be granted by the Society to any qualifying applicant in respect of a qualifying claim and all losses (whether incidental, consequential or otherwise), damages, costs, charges and expenses connected with a qualifying claim. The grant of an indemnity shall be entirely in the discretion of the Council, who shall have the power to impose such terms and conditions on the grant of any indemnity as it thinks fit, and may in its absolute discretion limit or restrict such indemnity or decline altogether to grant the same."

Clinical Negligence cover – the HPPB approach is to understand the work of a practitioner through the clinical work undertaken and coded via NCCS codes. We individually analysis and present each practitioner to underwriters, years of experience tell us that this is the best way to tailor cover, whether it be the indemnity limit or a proper categorisation of your risk.
