Challenging the cost of clinical negligence

These are undoubtedly challenging times for healthcare professionals in South Africa, and we understand that increases in the cost of membership subscriptions can be painful and may have a significant impact on some.

As the leading provider of professional protection to more than 30,000 health professionals in South Africa and 300,000 worldwide, MPS has a unique insight into the nature of clinical negligence claims.

In ‘Challenging the Cost of Clinical Negligence; The Case for Reform’ we raise ideas to help address some of the factors contributing to this situation.
