Elite leap to the aid of medical agencies

Master Elite Insurance Logo_(green)Following the recent MOJ announcement on MedCo, Medical Reporting Agencies (MROs) have been given under 4 weeks to find £1million worth of professional indemnity cover in order to be considered for the MedCo portal.

Professional indemnity insurance is not something previously required by MROs and so finding this type of cover before the April 6 deadline has led many agencies to scrabble around trying to find suitable insurance.

Elite Insurance has leapt to the aid of MROs using its existing knowledge, having previously had a medical agency legal reports & services for over 15 years, coupled with its extensive experience in writing Solicitors Professional Indemnity Insurance.

Any medical reporting agencies looking for this type of cover should email medco@elite-insurance.co.uk

If the recent furore about McKenzie Friend Marketplace shows anything, it is that the profession remains acutely sensitive to the apparent threat of competition by unregulated entrants into the legal landscape. But for an outside observer, the whole McKenzie Friend debate remains curiously overblown: if not a storm in a teacup, a storm at least in a teapot. For all the characteristic sturm und drang of the Law Society’s response to last year’s senior judiciary consultation, there was pretty widespread agreement among most respondents that McKenzie Friends are here to stay.
