Why do you need your own insurance?
As a junior doctor you face important decisions that will ultimately shape your medical career. Your skill and reputation are building, making it more important than ever to have insurance that protects and supports you.
Despite being indemnified by your employer, this may not be all you need. The cover can be restricted and may not protect you in every circumstance. Discover a range of scenarios where you'll benefit from your own independent insurance and having MIGA "on your side".
