New Doctor

New Doctor is a magazine produced by MPS for junior doctors in Ireland.

Aimed at final year medical students, interns and first year SHOs, we take a look at medicolegal issues and offer solutions to practical problems, such as record keeping, maintaining confidentiality and safe prescribing.

Our experienced Medicolegal Advisers take calls from members with medicolegal queries every day and in New Doctor they share their top tips for practising safely.


If you want to get in touch about anything we’ve covered in New Doctor, or would like to suggest ideas for future editions, please contact us on +44 113 241 0683 or email the editor, Sara Dawson.
