Here is how membership in BAMP can benefit you!
As a trade union, BAMP can ensure that the voice of the medical profession is heard in Barbados. Our profession is by its very nature time consuming and potentially stressful. As a member of BAMP, you can rest assured that your professional interests are being looked after. Policy, conditions of employment and service are all areas that fall under the auspices of the organization.
Through the association, members have access to one of the most important tools of this profession, affordable insurance. Sagicor General Insurance a well-known, highly-rated insurance company across the Caribbean has developed a very attractive package for BAMP members. They offer substantial discounts on what can be one of the most costly aspects of operating a medical practice. Contact us (already put as a hyperlink text to the CONTACT US page) for further information or visit the members-only area (put as a hyperlink text).

Further details can be obtained directly from the Medical Protection Society’s website www.mps.org.uk

A special package is currently being negotiated with First Caribbean International.
