Background

We launched SEMPRIS in 2010 in response to requests by doctors involved in the treatment of professional sportspeople for an indemnity scheme that provided comprehensive protection against the unique risks they face every day.

Keeping you protected

Many of the significant and very real risks doctors face when treating professional sports people aren’t covered by traditional MDOs. At SEMPRIS, we won’t leave you exposed.

The number of reported claims by professional and elite sportspeople against doctors is increasing, making it all the more important for doctors to understand the unique risks they face and how their existing indemnity is leaving them exposed.

Our website helps doctors understand their true risk exposure and provide an indemnity solution backed by a range of underwriters from the financially secure Lloyd’s of London insurance market.

At the time, the MPS and MDU had chosen to limit or withdraw cover for any damages, claimants’ costs and/or defence costs relating to a claim against doctors from employers, clubs, agents and sponsors.

Our members typically include orthopaedic consultants, radiologists, cardiologists, rheumatologists and SEM physicians.

Today, SEMPRIS is acknowledged to be the ONLY indemnity scheme for doctors involved in or exposed to the treatment of professional sportspeople.
