With the on-going coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we know that this is a worrying time for everyone, but particularly for those healthcare practitioners who are providing frontline services and advice to patients. We understand your concerns and are here to offer support and advice if you need it.
We would urge all healthcare practitioners in Ireland to be aware of and follow Health Service Executive (HSE) advice, particularly those healthcare providers who may have responsibility for assessing possible cases of COVID-19.
We appreciate that practitioners may have to change how they consult with their patients during the coronavirus crisis – which could mean holding remote consultations. Please be reassured that should you need to do a remote consultation with a patient whom you would ordinarily see face-to-face, your membership with Medical Protection will enable you to request assistance for matters that could arise from such consultations during this time. We have more information regarding remote consultations here along with a webinar on the topic here.
