About

MEDICAL DEFENCE AUSTRALIA

Hospitals can be dangerous places. Mistakes can be made. Lives can be seriously shattered or lost. When that happens someone has to pay.

That's when doctors turn to MDA - the medical defence and indemnity organisation that must negotiate its way through ethical minefields and around litigious lawyers.

Rarely has a television show been this gripping and this topical. MDA stars international award-winning actors Kerry Armstrong and Jason Donovan.
