Why continue your Medical Protection membership?

We’re the only medical defence organisation with members all over the world, and expertise that can help keep you safe throughout your career.

Member of another organisation? That’s not a problem. At this stage in your career it’s fine to explore your options. Being with another MDO won’t affect your Medical Protection membership.

Your benefits can help you stay seamlessly protected as you start a more practical role.

  • If something goes wrong, don’t worry. Your membership means you have the right to request assistance for complaints that arise from your clinical practice.
  • Give yourself peace of mind as you progress your career. You’ll also have the right to request assistance with clinical negligence claims when you start to practise outside the protection of NHS indemnity.
  • Everyone needs someone to talk to every now and again, so you can always call one of our team for expert medicolegal advice. There’s even out-of-hours help in an emergency. If you’re facing an issue, call +44 113 241 0200.
  • Your membership goes beyond just clinical negligence claims. Don’t forget that you can also ask for help for disciplinary procedures, regulatory issues, Gardaí investigations and inquests.
  • Add to your growing expertise with our risk management courses. Tackling common causes of complaints, you can choose from accessible online learning or in-person workshops presented by experienced doctors.
