The benefits of corporate membership

As a corporate member you get: 

  • access to indemnity for corporate clinical indemnity claims
    • claims made against the company
    • liability of the company for the alleged clinical negligence of employed and contracted staff
  • support for Good Samaritan acts for your identified staff 
  • access to a large team of specialist doctors, dentists, lawyers and claims handlers.

An important benefit of corporate membership is to protect the organisation against claims arising from the acts of staff who would not be expected to carry their own individual indemnity.  

Other benefits of corporate membership include access to: 

  • themdu.com with case histories and medico-legal articles
  • risk management advice
  • free 24-hour employment law advice line 
  • personal account management
  • expert publications on topics such as confidentiality and consent.

Free employment advice support for corporate members 

Whether your business is new or has been around for many years, you may, at some stage, need support when dealing with an employee or an ex-employee. For example: 

  • Your probationary practice nurse keeps turning up late for work.
  • You are told that someone you recently employed has a criminal conviction. 
  • Your healthcare assistant wants to reduce their hours due to family commitments.

The Peninsula employment advice services includes: 

  • 24/7 helpdesk, to guide you through employment law issues and problems
  • dedicated consultants with in-depth experience in employment legislation, contractual requirements and case law precedents
  • advice line access via telephone or email
  • assistance in drafting any follow up letters
  • telephone coaching in managing difficult or complex employee relations issues.
