We can help you deal with and manage medico-legal challenges so you can practise with confidence. Consult our advisory helpline day or night on complex areas like consent, assessing capacity and more.
Alongside professional indemnity and expert guidance, you can also organise free on-site medico-legal training for you and your team, including attendance certificates for revalidation purposes.
Members can also earn free online CPD and book useful courses on preparing for your first consultant role and setting up in independent practice. When you need support, we’re here for you.
We offer our members expert guidance, personal support and robust defence in addressing medico-legal issues, complaints and claims.
99% of calls to the MDU medico-legal helpline are connected straight to a medico-legal adviser during normal working hours.
In 2022 we successfully defended 82% of claims, making no compensation payments to patients.

We understand that these are unprecedented times. That’s why we have put together the resources you need during this difficult time. For information on coronavirus, please visit our COVID-19 resources.
By gross income, we mean your annual pre-tax earnings from any non-indemnified medical work you do, whether or not you receive any or all of this.
Before calculating your subscription, we allow you to deduct reasonable practice expenses - up to 50% of the gross figure.
Your net income is your annual gross income minus these reasonable practice expenses.
Allowable expenses are the same as those declared in your tax return. They are expenses which are wholly, exclusively and necessarily incurred for the purpose of clinical practice, such as professional fees (eg GMC, MDU subscription), premises costs, payroll costs, etc.

Everyone’s application is unique to their work circumstances.
It’s best to start the application process around four weeks before your current indemnity ends. This will allow plenty of time for your current provider to give you a letter of good standing, if needed.
We’ll keep you regularly updated by email once we’ve received your application. If we haven’t got everything we need, we’ll be in touch to clarify things.
To avoid any gaps in your indemnity, it’s important you don’t cancel your current indemnity until your MDU membership is confirmed.
No. It’s important you wait to hear back from us about your application first. Please call our membership team on 0800 716 376 if you require your membership to start sooner.
Depending on your role, please have details about your work, registration, qualifications and indemnity history to hand.
We’re always here to help and answer any questions. Call our membership team on 0800 716 376 or connect with your local MDU liaison manager here.
