The Association of British Insurers has revealed the make up of a new rehabilitation panel to provide a unified voice for insurers.
The panel will be chaired by Rosie Hewitt, rehabilitation manager at QBE European Operations, and includes representatives from Allianz, Aviva, Axa, Covea, Direct Line, HSBC, Lloyds Banking, LV, MIB, NFU, Saga, Swiss Re, Unum, and Zurich.
It has been regularly meeting since 18 July.
Hewitt said that insurers have playing a central role in the development of rehabilitation as an industry, but have previously lacked a single group to discuss related issues that are a priority for them.
"Through the establishment of the Rehabilitation Panel for Insurers, we have created a platform for insurers to share best practice with the view to further developing the industry's rehabilitation proposition and ultimately benefitting injured parties throughout the UK," she added.
The panel inform the work of the ABI's rehabilitation working party which works in collaboration with the International Underwriting Association.
Aidan Kerr, head of property and health at the ABI said: "The ABI is committed to helping insurers deliver appropriate rehabilitation outcomes to consumers and our expert panel will support the sector to achieve this."
