I was pleased to get the opportunity to meet with Minister for Health Simon Harris recently to discuss ongoing indemnity related matters in the private healthcare sector. I updated him on the success of our comprehensive and competitive indemnity support services and the positive impact it was having on private healthcare in Ireland.

We will continue to develop our products and services to improve the insurance conditions for our healthcare clients. This will be achieved by enhancing the partnerships we have developed between the various bodies and associations who have responsibilities to private healthcare indemnity in Ireland. There are also some proposed (cross department) legislative changes aimed at improving the medical negligence personal injury claim process. These changes should have a positive effect by reducing the length of time it can take to complete a case and the reducing the costs associated with running them.
