4th October 2017

  • 24-hour legal helpline
  • Defence for professional disciplinary (GMC), regulatory, employment and patient complaints
  • Flexible limits and variable excess options
  • Locum and out of hours coverage
  • Run-off cover
  • Global Cover (including USA)
  • Access to an in-house team of medical experts for specialist advice

 

Dr. Edwin Rajadurai (MBBS), Executive Director of Servca, said: “We’re very excited to have been chosen as a preferred supplier of Medical Indemnity insurance for BIBA members. This appointment is recognition of our expertise in this area.    Our specialist wordings and unique in-house medical knowledge offers comprehensive support to brokers and their healthcare clients with an educational approach, helping brokers to win and retain business.  We look forward to working closely with BIBA and its members throughout the United Kingdom to establish competitive insurance solutions for even the most difficult risks.”

Mike Hallam, Head of Technical Services at BIBA, said: “It is refreshing to find an intelligent approach to a market that needs innovative underwriting and distribution to tackle the unique requirements of today’s medical practitioners.  Our members and their medical professional clients will benefit greatly from competitive premiums and dedicated service levels as well as access to Servca’s Lloyd’s A-rated capacity and expertise in medical indemnity, backed by in-house medical advice.  Servca is an exciting new provider for BIBA and its members.”
