24-hour Clinico-Legal Support

MIPS receives around 4,000 clinico-legal contacts from members each year. Of these, only a small fraction end up becoming a claim. In most cases, MIPS can provide advice that either helps prevent an incident from becoming a claim or assists a member to further protect themselves in the event of a claim.

Speak with an experienced practitioner anytime of the day

If you are a member, feel free to contact MIPS using our 24-hour Clinico-Legal Support service to discuss any professional matter you feel may put you at professional risk. This includes both your clinical practice and aspects of your professional practice not associated with treating patients, such  as your own professional conduct or health.

MIPS prides itself on the quality of the independent and confidential advice that its expert advisers provide. This service is included as part of membership at no additional charge.

When MIPS receives a notification from a member about a claim or complaint, an experienced clinician will call you to discuss the matter. If you call the 24-hour Clinico-Legal Support line you can speak with an experienced fellow healthcare practitioner (including outside of business hours).
