About MDU

The MDU is led and staffed by doctors who have real-life experience of the pressures and challenges you face every day. Their expertise in medico-legal issues, complaints and claims is unparalleled.

Since 1885, we have been indemnifying doctors for incidents arising from their clinical care of patients. We are proud of our heritage, but we are always looking forward, shaping our products and services to meet the changing needs of the medical profession.
