Membership with Medical Protection provides you with the right to request assistance for cases arising in a range of different situations and our experts are always there, in your corner, for whatever challenges you may face throughout your career.

What would you do if...

You were called upon as part of an inquest

When a patient died during a procedure, the member was asked to provide a statement to the coroner. We helped them write a statement, and supported and prepared them for the inquest process.

A consultant working in A&E received an allegation of sexual assault following a patient examination. We assisted the member throughout the full investigation.

When this experienced consultant faced formal disciplinary action we never stopped fighting his case in pursuit of clarity and a successful resolution for all parties.

Pressures of the job saw this consultant turn to alcohol as a coping mechanism. Fearful of the affect on their career and reputation, they reached out to us for help with the GMC investigation

NHS consultant case studies

These real-life case studies feature a range of common medicolegal challenges experienced by NHS consultants like yourself, such as consent, Good Samaritan acts, and hearings, and have been chosen to give you clear learning points to help you avoid similar situations and reduce your risk.
