Educational Services

DPL has an established policy of providing risk management publications, seminars and other educational resources, with the aim of preventing avoidable harm to patients and reducing risk to members. These are provided for members either free of charge on request, or at preferential rates.

Discretion

The benefits of membership of MPS are discretionary as set out in the Memorandum and Articles of Association. One of these benefits is the option for members to ask for assistance from MPS if they need help or support. MPS’s board of directors – MPS Council – uses discretion as to whether or not support should be given. As a mutual organisation, MPS continually weighs the interests of individual members against the interests of the membership as a whole. In some circumstances it may be appropriate to use discretion to decline or limit assistance, where assisting a member is not in the interests of the membership as a whole.
