The Medical Protection Society, the UK’s largest mutual protection

society, has chosen Morgan Allen Moore to handle its public affairs.



Morgan Allen Moore saw off Politics International in a competitive

pitch.



The society previously used CSM, which held the account for almost ten

years until last month.



The agency has been charged with raising the profile of the society

among Government audiences. The society wants more input into health

policy, especially that relating to medical negligence.



Agency director Shelley McNicol, who will lead the account, reporting to

society policy and external affairs head Dr Gerard Panting, said: ’The

society represents almost half the doctors and dentists in the UK. It’s

essential for it to input effectively into the political process.’



The Medical Protection Society is run and funded by healthcare

practitioners.



It provides services including professional indemnity in medical

negligence cases, representation at inquiries and disciplinary

proceedings and legal and ethical advice.
