Why indemnity is so important

All doctors practising medicine in Ireland must have indemnity cover appropriate to the nature of their employment/practice arrangement and their area of practice.

Medical Protection has been supporting doctors in Ireland for over 100 years and we work tirelessly to help you through the next stage of your career, and beyond.
