Becoming a GP?

Your first GP post

We're pleased to offer GPs in training in England and Wales a saving of 70%* on their first year of GP membership and further savings for the following four years.

Throughout your training you will come across many different situations. From dealing with the various needs of patients to working within a challenging COVID environment where consultation with your patients may be done remotely. To help you navigate your way through training, the MDU is here to provide members with expert medico-legal guidance and support

We offer advice 24 hours a day, seven days a week on issues such as patient complaints, GMC referrals, ombudsman investigations, performers' list actions, coroners' inquests and even criminal investigations. And as an MDU member, you get access to:

  • 24-hour medico-legal advice line.
  • Indemnity for non-NHS work for common practice activities such as providing medical reports and certificates and travel clinic services for practice patients.
  • Medico-legal guides, webinars, podcasts and videos.
  • FREE online CPD.
  • the MDU's digital journal which includes features, medico-legal updates and case studies.
