Ireland Casebook May 2016 


Casebook is Medical Protection's flagship journal. Each issue is full of medicolegal news, thought-provoking features and case reports.

Casebook aims to promote safer practice by providing information and sharing experiences that you will find helpful. It consistently meets with high praise from Medical Protection members and frequently sparks debate and discussion within the medicolegal field.

IR Practice Matters May 2017

Practice Matters

Our magazine for GP partners and practice managers, Practice Matters, strives to provide an entertaining and informative read that shares important medicolegal advice and practical tips that can be used in practice.

The legislative, financial and regulatory environment that governs general practice becomes more complex by the day. We hope that Practice Matters will help you tiptoe through this minefield.

New Doctor Ireland Cover

New Doctor

New Doctor is a magazine produced by Medical Protection for doctors in their first two years qualified.

Every year dozens of doctors are held to account for unethical behaviour and are struck off the medical register. We want to support you with the skills and knowledge you need to practise safely. New Doctor draws on the real experiences of practising doctors to tackle the ethical and legal issues that confront every new doctor.

Medical Protection factsheets

Medical Protection factsheets are short guides to particular medicolegal issues. They provide essential and practical advice for doctors practising in Ireland.
These factsheets provide only a general overview of the topic and should not be relied upon as definitive guidance. 

If you are a Medical Protection member and need specific advice, call +44 113 243 6436 and ask to speak to a medicolegal adviser.

Case reports

We publish case reports as an aid to Medical Protection members, to alert them to pitfalls that have caught their colleagues unawares.
We believe that these are an invaluable risk management tool and, as such, they should be rooted in fact – ie, based on actual events.

However, to preserve as far as possible the confidentiality of the people involved (both patients and healthcare professionals) we have altered some of the details.
