Medical Protection Publications



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.



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.
