The core function of the press office is to provide media handling support to Medical Protection members. If you find yourself in the media spotlight please get in touch and we can provide expert advice and support, including liaising with journalists and providing statements on your behalf.

Media scrutiny of you and your practice could put your personal and professional reputation at risk. Early advice from the press office can help mitigate risks and we can help you respond to the media and deal with them on your behalf.

Handling the Media

A guide for doctors

We have developed a comprehensive guide for doctors who receive attention from the media.

Handling the media: A guide for doctors has been designed to reflect members’ needs and the current press environment. The guide provides advice on the most effective way to respond to a journalist, from initial contact to providing a statement.
