Protection for practices


More GPs in New Zealand trust us with their career and reputation than any other medical defence organisation, and now we’re helping you protect your practice too.

Our new Practice Membership provides comprehensive indemnity that’s there if you face a complaint or investigation not covered by a member’s individual indemnity.

Your practice can get advice and assistance along with a host of other benefits including:

Free indemnity for practice managers and practice nurses*

Discounted group scheme rates for GPs and Nurse Practitioners

Privacy matters

Medicolegal advice

Medicolegal advice line including out of hours emergency support 24/7

Clinical negligence

You can request indemnity for clinical negligence claims

Vicarious liability

Advice and legal representation

You can request advice and legal representation for coroner's inquests, disciplinary and regulatory proceedings (e.g. MCNZ), HDC inquiries and criminal investigations related to your professional practice

Complaints support

Help responding to and resolving patient complaints

Help with unwanted media attention

Expert support including preparing statements and responding to the media on your behalf

Counselling service available to all staff

Access to our confidential counselling service to support a staff member through a stressful situation they may be experiencing

Risk prevention benefits for you and the team

  • Practice presentations
  • Access to PRISM for all staff

Expert legal team

*Limits to the number of free practice manager and practice nurse memberships provided may apply depending on the size of the practice.

**The employee must be included in the Practice Membership or have their own individual Medical Protection membership.

With your practice being as vulnerable to medicolegal risk as your GPs, Practice Membership gives you peace of mind that you’re always protected.
