Clinical Negligence Insurance Expertise

The UK healthcare landscape has undergone substantial change in recent years and the Lockton team have kept abreast of these changes every step of the way – from new regulations to the impact of the Francis Inquiry. Our experts fully appreciate the conflicting demands on clients to deliver quality patient outcomes and manage costs.  Critically, our team’s remit is to advise clients how to reduce insurance/indemnity and claims costs – creating savings that can be invested in patient care.

Client Representation

Key to our long term client relationships is the Lockton Advantage: Our advisers enable clients to maximise the benefits of their patient safety and clinical risk management programmes, while ensuring their patients, staff and businesses are protected.

Advanced Analytics

To complement our team's data and actuarial analysis, we work with The Risk Authority at Stanford University Hospital & Clinics, to offer powerful, in-depth analytics of incident and claims data to identify and trend contributory factors.  This analysis directs specific clinical risk management strategies focused on reducing incidents of harm and claims.  

Inspiring Safer Care

Lockton Conference: Inspiring Safer Care

On Wednesday October 1st 2014, we hosted our inaugural Healthcare conference, aimed at inspiring safe care.

Attended by over 70 delegates, the conference featured presentations and workshops by esteemed speakers such as Jeff Driver, Chief Risk Officer at Stanford University Medical Network and Mike Farrar CBE, former Chief Executive of the NHS Confederation.
