The SEMPRIS policy addresses the inadequacies of my previous indemnity cover for the treatment of professional sports people. Not only is SEMPRIS part of a hugely professional organisation, but their premium is substantially lower than my previous insurers.

Mr Andrew M Williams MB BS, FRCS, FRCS (Orth), FFSEM (UK)
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

As a member of SEMPRIS since 2011, I would encourage any colleague whose practice includes professional athletes to discuss their circumstances with SEMPRIS. I moved to SEMPRIS because of this very issue and I have nothing but praise for the detailed understanding, service levels and fully comprehensive cover which the SEMPRIS team provide.

Mr Peter Brownson DM, FRCSEd, FRCS (Tr&Orth)
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

My experience with SEMPRIS has been very positive since joining; the customer service and support has been excellent. Changing provider was an easy process and choice for me as SEMPRIS were able to cover my general radiology, sports imaging and image-guided interventional radiology practice with minimum fuss after a simple assessment of my scope of practice.

Dr Richard Hughes MA, BMBCh, MRCP, FRCR
Consultant Radiologist

The SEMPRIS medico-legal service provided by DWF was fantastic after I was subject to a malicious allegation to the GMC. I have never had such a good experience with lawyers. The advisors were on hand when I needed the advice and dealt with it promptly and efficiently. Through their excellent handling of the case and first-class recommendations, the case was dismissed by the GMC. During an incredibly difficult time, it was very reassuring to have SEMPRIS and DWF on side.

Mr Ro Kulkarni MBBS, FRCS (Tr Orth)
Consultant Shoulder & Elbow Surgeon

SEMPRIS have always been accessible, accommodating and supportive. Their specialist knowledge within sports medicine is second to none.

Professor Aneil Malhotra
Consultant Cardiologist

I can rest assured that the team's insurance cover is provided by SEMPRIS. They have been diligent in providing their expertise whenever I have had a query with swift, open friendly communication.

In my opinion, SEMPRIS is the premier medical defence union by far when it comes to Sports and Exercise Medicine.

Dr Andrew Murray

Thanks to SEMPRIS for providing my peace of mind in treating elite athletes. Support and advice has always been professional.
