- Who We Are
PRASIS is a mutual, run exclusively by Plastic Surgeons for the benefit of the plastic surgical community. It is owned and governed by our members, all of whom are on the GMC Specialist Register for Plastic Surgery. PRASIS is strongly supported by the Chair and Clinical Board of Directors, the latter of which is responsible for the governance and strategy.
PRASIS has over 180 members, making it the largest community of indemnified Plastic Surgeons. It's sole aim is to protect plastic surgeons, by arranging an indemnity scheme and providing support and guidance to its members.
PRASIS has appointed Medical Insurance Consultants (MIC) as its insurance broker because of their specialist expertise in professional indemnity insurance. The indemnity scheme is underwritten pre-dominantly by CFC Underwriting Ltd, the largest independent MGA in London, whose team of underwriters has extensive experience in medical indemnity. As part of CFC’s product offering to PRASIS, we have the benefit of a medico-legal advisory service, provided by Weightmans LLP. Weightmans are a national law firm, with a specialist healthcare offering. It has an enviable reputation for expertise combined with a thoroughly professional and empathetic approach. The service is available during office hours for routine enquiries with an out of hours service for emergencies.

As members, you are provided with contractual indemnity for clinical negligence and public liability claims as well as 25 years run off cover following death or permanent retirement from practice. Cover is also included for professional training activities, Cyber, GMC investigations disciplinary enquiries & inquests as well as HMRC investigations.
