Do you feel like you're paying too much to your medical defence organisation? Especially as you're not doing any private work and very little fee-paying non-clinical work?
If you're working exclusively in a public hospital and indemnified by the State Claims Agency, you may think this is enough. But state indemnity only covers clinical negligence claims.
The MDU can offer you expert guidance where the state cannot, such as support with patient complaints, Medical Council referrals, inquests, disciplinary hearings and criminal investigations. Our membership is designed for registrars, senior registrars, specialist registrars and consultants solely engaged in public hospital work without any private clinical practice.
To be eligible, you can earn up €1,500 gross from specific non-clinical activities listed below, but your clinical work should be fully indemnified by the State Claims Agency scheme (enterprise liability).
