How much does elective protection cost?
Elective protection from us is completely free.
Does the elective protection include travel insurance?
We can offer 24/7 advice and support, but you will need to arrange appropriate travel insurance separately that provides you with personal injury cover while working in hospital.
When do I need to advise you that I’m doing an elective?
Get in touch as soon as your host has confirmed your elective placement.
What information do I need to give you to set up my elective protection?
All we need is:

the country you will be going to.
What do I need to show my elective host as proof of elective protection?
