The Medical Protection Society has well over 260,000 members. If a medical professional is facing legal action or a claim for compensation then they can turn to the MPS for help and advice. Although the society is aimed primarily at supporting doctors and nurses who are facing legal action, they are also committed to people receiving quality healthcare. If someone deserves compensation then the MPS ensures that it is paid with haste.
The MPS also aims to educate medical professionals on the pitfalls that the industry holds and also they investigate quackery. Quackery is the art of somebody posing as a healthcare professional with no qualifications.
