Public Consultation – Section 11 Rules Professional Indemnity

In 2017 the Oireachtas made changes to the Medical Practitioners Act requiring all registered doctors to have in place minimum levels of professional indemnity cover as may be specified by the National Treasury Management Agency. The Medical Council is obliged to seek confirmation from doctors that they have the appropriate level of cover in place.

The Council is now undertaking a public consultation on the rules which will guide the administrative arrangements to support the legislative changes.

A copy of the draft rules can be viewed here.
