WHY MEDICAL PROTECTION?
Any doctor, including a foundation doctor, may be the subject of a complaint, GMC investigation, media enquiry, coroner’s inquest or disciplinary action resulting from your professional practice. So it’s essential that you have appropriate protection in place as NHS indemnity is not enough.
More than 80% of newly qualified doctors in the UK are members of Medical Protection
