MPS Associates

If you wish to chat informally to a medical colleague you can contact a local Associate.

Associates are a group of MPS members. They provide peer support rather than medicolegal advice, but of course treat everything in the strictest confidence. Any advice needed on a case can only be provided by our specialist medicolegal advisers or expert panel lawyers. Contact details of our Associates can be found below.
