Handling the media - A guide for doctors

Media scrutiny of you and your practice of medicine could put your personal and professional reputation at risk. Where a media query relates to issues that fall within the scope of the benefits of membership, the Medical Protection Press Office is on hand to provide expert advice throughout the process.

Early advice from the Press Office can help prevent issues escalating. We advise you to contact your case handler if you have received press interest about an ongoing case or contact the Press Office directly about any other issues.

Media advice is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
