Frequently asked questions

We have received a number of phone calls from members who want to know if they need to take any action as a result of the GMC's new legal requirement for doctors to have adequate and appropriate indemnity for their clinical work.

Am I indemnified if helping out at a sporting event?

In most cases, providing you have the appropriate training and equipment, your membership would allow for this type of work.

Are subscriptions (fees) available on your website?

We offer a wide range of subscriptions which are tailored for each member depending on the type and amount of work you do.

Calculating subscriptions (fees)

Your subscription will vary depending on the amount and type of work you do.

Can I still ask for assistance if I leave the MDU, retire from practice or go on a break?

MDU professional indemnity is provided on an "occurrence basis". This means you can ask for our assistance as long as you were our member at the time of the incident which caused the claim.

Does MDU professional indemnity still apply if I work over the 48 hours as advised by the European Working Time Directive?

As long as a member is appropriately trained and working within the law, you can request our assistance within the normal terms and conditions of membership.

Do you provide indemnity for working overseas?

If you are planning to work overseas, please let our membership team know.

How to calculate a session

Your subscription is based on the amount and type of work that you do.
