In a member's words

Dr Eric Tan

Waikato Hospital

‘I came across Medicus by chance when I arrived in New Zealand to practise Plastic Surgery in 2016 and can only compare my experience with Medicus to other UK indemnity institution. The support I received from Medicus for medicolegal matters over the years can only be summarised as akin to a clinician consulting another trusted colleague at work. In today’s ever evolving world of increasing political complexities and societal dynamics; I do not feel I can serve my patients to my best ability without the confidence of knowing I am supported by Medicus.’
