Do we have to tell our insurer about a driving suspension?

My wife has just had an operation and has been told by the surgeon that she must not drive for six months. Presumably, the hospital will notify DVLA so that her licence is suspended for that period. Are we under a duty to tell our insurers and will it affect the premiums? She will obviously respect the suspension.

Yes, there is a duty on your wife to notify her insurer. It should not affect her premium.
