The membership of choice for Community Service Officers and Medical Officers

While your employer may cover you financially for clinical negligence claims, who’s there to protect your reputation and give you expert advice and guidance when you need it?

Medical Protection has a local team of medicolegal experts ready to support you when you need it most. Membership is completely FREE for your year as a Community Service Officer and your first year as a Medical Officer. 

As a member you can request advice and legal representation for HPCSA investigations, inquests and disciplinary matters, and criminal proceedings related to your clinical practice.

You can also access free confidential counselling which includes support for work-related stress that may impact your practice like burnout, anxiety and conflict.
