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?
As a consultant (or hospital doctor not currently in a training post), who works only in a public hospital where all your clinical practice is indemnified by the State Claims Agency, you may think that state indemnity is enough. But the state scheme only provides indemnity for clinical negligence claims.
You need the expert guidance that MDU membership provides, such as support with patient complaints, Medical Council referrals, inquests, disciplinary hearings and criminal investigations.
Our new membership could be for you. It is designed for consultants (and hospital doctors not currently in training posts) who don't do any private clinical work and do not earn more than €1,500 gross from certain non-clinical work, listed below. It does not include indemnity for clinical negligence claims.
