Is this with reference to the "expedition insurance" offered through BCA or the standard public liability insurance offered as part of BCA membership?

If you mean you have paid for BCA membership and the insurance cover that comes with it then don't worry as you'll get a card with the number on it in due course Thomas.
Doesn't usually take long but given current situation allow a couple of weeks.

I've never had to show that I've got BCA membership at any site I've been to though, so wouldn't be worrying at all.

And if you mean the BCA travel/exped insurance, you should have received something in writing almost immediately to your email, so would consider calling them back to chase that.

The membership administrator is a part time filled post so it could take a week or more to be processed. Also if you joined via a club, then usualy, cards go via the club. So you may wish to ask whoever in the club who dealt with your application. HTH

Correct. BCA does not sell insurance policy(ies); insurance is a membership benefit. A major difference.
