MPS Council acts as the company’s board of directors, and the majority of its members are eminent clinicians elected by the membership. The Council meets around eight times a year and they have ultimate responsibility for the actions of the organisation, including the exercise of discretion in accordance with the purpose for which MPS exists – ie. in the professional interests of individual members and the membership as a whole. Council uses discretion to directly consider requests for assistance with cases that lie outside our normal activities.
As the majority of Council members are healthcare professionals, members can be assured that their cases will receive a sympathetic and understanding consideration.
All authority ultimately rests with MPS Council. The Council’s obligations and powers (in addition to those imposed on or granted to it by law) are set out in the Memorandum and Articles of Association.
