When you need support, we’re by your side

We are pleased to be the corporate indemnity partner for HCA Healthcare UK

You can rest assured that HCA has chosen the UK’s leading medical defence organisation to protect you, as a Resident Doctor, against clinical negligence claims.   

This starts on 1 November 2020 and does not include individual professional support for GMC investigations, disciplinary hearings, coroners inquests and patient complaints. You can still apply for this support by upgrading your membership with the MDU. 

Already an MDU member?

Upgrade your current MDU membership to include professional support for your work at HCA. In most cases, this can be included within your current subscription, but we will contact you to advise if any additional subscription is due.

New to the MDU?

If you are currently not an MDU member, you can apply for upgraded membership for just £50. This will entitle you to market leading support, guidance and defence for medico-legal issues relating to your HCA work.
