A new kind of MDO
We can help members avoid risk and respond efficiently and quickly to any professional difficulties that may arise
Our experienced medico-legal advisory team are able to provide expert advise on a wide range of issues. We also offer free advice on HR and employment law matters. Our in-house team of GPs understand the challenges of modern practice and are able to offer that much needed help and support.
