Dear Reader,

This Annual Survey of Medical Malpractice Judgments of 2018 is industry first and yet another example of Natmed Medical Defence leading the way and contributing to the medical and medical malpractice insurance industries.

The Survey collates, reviews and comments on South African medical malpractice judgments of 2018. It represents South African law as at 31 December 2018.

For definitions of medical malpractice and insurance terms, see our Natmedipedia.

My thanks to our CEO Donald Dinnie, who is steeped in years of experience and expertise in South African health and medical malpractice law, head of legal Aneesa Bodiat and the Natmed legal team, for their excellent work in conceiving and producing the Survey, the first of many more for years to come.

The Survey also has the benefit of a sequence of e-learning CPD tests for doctors. The tests will be released monthly, with the first test already available at Take the tests to earn a total of 6 CPD points.

Enjoy your read.
