Medical Protection offers healthcare professionals a complete service designed to bring them peace of mind throughout their careers.
Medical Protection membership provides you with the right to request indemnity for claims arising from your practice. What sets us apart is the range of benefits that can assist and protect you throughout your career including risk prevention tools and techniques to help you practice more safely and support your professional development.
We treat all our members as individuals by using the detailed information about your scope of practice to provide you with a tailored membership subscription, giving you the peace of mind that you have the appropriate indemnity in place.
We have over 125 years of expertise as the world’s leading member-owned, not-for-profit organisation for doctors and healthcare professionals.
Following the introduction of clinical negligence schemes in England and Wales, the state now provides indemnity for clinical negligence claims related to the provision of NHS primary medical services. Medical Protection continues to provide comprehensive protection for circumstances not covered by the scheme, and the right to request indemnity for claims which are outside the scope of state indemnity if you have an appropriate Claims Protection membership for this work.
