Whether you’re a nurse or practice manager, pharmacist or physician associate, you can count on our personal support should you need expert medico-legal advice.
We’re here for you if you face a patient complaint, disciplinary hearing or fitness to practise investigation. We also offer a range of free online educational resources to help you keep up with your professional development.
Practice managers may be interested in our group scheme. It’s free to set up, and includes free membership for practice managers and offers additional free benefits for the practice such as free seminars and a 24-hour employment law advice line.
Our medico-legal advisers, all doctors, have been recognised with the Princess Royal Training award for excellence in training.
Over 98% of calls to the MDU medico-legal helpline are connected straight to a medico-legal adviser during normal working hours.
Over the last 10 years we successfully defended over 77% of claims, making no compensation payments.
Once you’re happy to proceed, you’ll need to complete an application form.
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.
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.
