Professional Indemnity Insurance for Radiologists

Whether you treat athletes occasionally on a regular basis understanding the risks involved in working with sportspeople and, protecting yourself against them, is important.

The number of reported claims by professional sportspeople involving both clubs and doctors is rising. The increasing sums of money in professional sport, the rise of immediate media, a generally more litigious culture and a range of other factors are all adding pressure.

This trend makes it essential for all radiologists involved in the treatment of professional sportspeople to fully understand the risks and ensure they have “appropriate indemnity” that responds to claims in respect of negligence and contract.

“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
