It is such a difficult time for doctors and your patients and we are very much aware of the pressurised circumstances everyone is working under. Medisec wishes you all well during these challenging times and please be assured of our continued support.

Due to public health advice regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), in the interests of public and staff safety, we have taken the decision to close our office and our staff members will work remotely.  We can assure you that we will continue to provide a full service for our members and we remain available 24/7 to answer any query you may have. If you are already liaising with our team members, they will be in contact with you directly.

In the interim, please avoid sending membership applications directly to our office by post.

We will remain working remotely until further notice in line with public health advices. We will facilitate urgent face to face consultations as necessary.
