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.
Medical Defense Society offers membership which includes access to legal and professional indemnity*. Our indemnity package meets the legal requirements and standards set by GMC and NHS England including a minimum cover of £10 million.
As a mutual organisation, we exist solely for the benefit of our GP members and no dividends are paid to shareholders. We are able to tailor a membership to meet your practice requirements.
Medical Defense Society will be offering ongoing learning and development opportunities including various training packages and courses to assist all our members in providing a safer medical practice to their patients
Medical Defense Society members are entitled to take part in the NHS England winter indemnity scheme starting on 1st October 2017 until 2nd April 2018
