Advice and support

MIPS receives around 5,000 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.
