The Minister for Health, Simon Harris TD, has signed a commencement order setting out that from Monday, November 6th, 2017, all medical practitioners applying to register with the Medical Council must provide evidence of professional medical indemnity. Details of the requirements will be made available to applicants from the 6th of November. Read the updated Medical Practitioners (Amendment) Act 2017.

Medical practitioners currently registered with the Medical Council will be requested to confirm their professional indemnity arrangements at the renewal of their registration in June 2018. Further communication will be issued closer to that time.
