Through James Hallam, DDU practice principals can save money on practice and locum insurance.

Exclusive discounted practice overheads insurance

The DDU has partnered with insurance brokers James Hallam to offer members the opportunity to save money on their insurance, including an exclusive discount on practice overheads insurance.

Also known as locum insurance, this covers the cost of any unplanned absences for your surgery which could be caused by illness or injury. It can cover the cost of hiring a locum or providing temporary or paid overtime to existing staff members.

This can protect the absent partner from having to fund the cost themselves, and ensures they meet their contractual obligations. Other advantages can include paid maternity and paternity benefits, stress and depression cover.

Exclusive discounted surgery insurance

A surgery policy to cover the risk of loss or damage to your premises, this includes contents, loss of income and liability cover for your staff. Cover can also be extended to include the absence of one key person, such as a practice manager. The policies can cover traditional single surgeries as well as multiple sites.

James Hallam Limited can advise you on the most appropriate cover for your needs for both products. To get a quote, contact James Hallam Pro Med:
