We offer our members expert guidance, personal support and robust defence in addressing medico-legal issues, complaints and claims. Our customised services range from legal assistance to indemnity to appropriate CPD.
The MDU is a not-for-profit organisation wholly dedicated to our members’ interests. Our team is led and staffed by doctors with real-life experience of the pressures and challenges faced in practice.
We have an unparalleled track-record of helping members overcome the challenges which threaten their livelihood. Our members practise with confidence because they know the MDU is on their side and by their side.
Since 1885, we have been defending doctors in claims arising from the care they provide to patients. We are proud of our heritage, but we are always looking forward, and shaping our products and services to meet the changing needs of the medical profession.
