Insurer releases an overview of SA medical malpractice cover

Organisation: Position: Deadline Date: Location:

Natmed has published an overview of medical malpractice insurance under the title Understanding Medical Malpractice Insurance in South Africa.

Modern-day doctors are, however, not only exposed to significant reputational damage and professional sanction, but civil damages. These damages can run into the tens of millions of rands, depending on the type of medicine and speciality practised by the doctor.

The overview includes a review of SA medical malpractice law. It then discusses, in some detail, medical malpractice insurance and its constituent components, including the difference between occurrence-based and claims-made types of insurance.
