DASLawAssist 200Leading legal expenses insurer DAS has partnered with Paragon International Insurance Brokers to provide legal protection for its policy for surgical professionals.

Paragon currently offers the policy to ten insurance indemnity schemes, catering for a number of surgical specialties:

  • The ISIS Indemnity Scheme (incorporating Orthopaedic, Spinal and Neurosurgeons).
  • The ISISIS Group (incorporating Plastic, Ophthalmic, General, ENT, Gynaecological and Urological surgeons).
  • SEMPRIS (Sports and Exercise Medicine Professionals Indemnity Scheme, an appointed representative of Health Partners Europe Limited).

The mandatory cover that DAS supplies within the policy includes General Medical Council disciplinary hearings, contract disputes, personal injury, property protection, tax protection, legal defence and access to the DAS legal advice helpline.

Darren Weekes, UK Broker Sales Manager at DAS UK Group, said: “Providing legal protection for these insurance indemnity schemes helps medical practitioners minimise the risks of claims being made which other indemnity insurance may not cover. We look forward to working closely with Paragon to deliver the high quality product and service their customers expect.”

Ian Redbourn, Head of Healthcare at Paragon International Insurance Brokers, said: “At Paragon we provide medical professionals with the level of insurance cover that allows them to continue to practice medicine in a way that meets the needs of their patients. Partnering with DAS to provide the legal protection within the policy helps to give our customers further peace of mind against a range of legal issues that they may face.”
