As an intern working in a public hospital, your employer provides indemnity against clinical negligence claims arising from your professional practice. But 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.
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 confidential counselling which includes support for work-related stress that may impact your practice like burnout, anxiety and conflict.
