About Indigo Indemnity Protection

Indigo has developed from lessons learned in the development of PRASIS a specialty specific mutual indemnity scheme for Plastic Surgeons. It is closely allied to the Confederation of British Surgery and provides material support for the Surgical Advisory Service to assist clinicians in difficulty in all of the surgically related specialties.

This scheme has been specifically developed to provide greater security and sustainability than that associated with the major Medical Defence Organisations but in a manner which focusses upon the needs of individual surgeons. Premiums reflect an individual’s scope of practice and professional behaviours rather than their specialty group and income band alone.

The scheme is contractual and financially regulated rather than discretionary and unregulated in nature and includes cover for cyber losses and for educational roles such as a Training Programme Director, Assigned Educational Supervisor and Clinical Supervisor. None of these activities are at present covered by any other insurer with the cover from NHS Trusts and Deaneries being purely discretionary.

Any quote is intended to be an accurate reflection of your previous practice and expected workload over the forthcoming year. It does not pound cost average your risk with others, nor does it include cover for procedures you specifically want to exclude. It is customised to your requirements.

Through its partners INDIGO can also provide cover to protect your income, liabilities, staff, properties and any other business or personal insurance you may need.
