Indemnity - MDU
The BMA and Somerset LMC are unable to provide specific advice or guidance on which medical defence organisation a doctor should use. GPs need to ensure they maintain the full indemnity cover before any change to a state-backed scheme in the future.
Recently additional information has been published on the MDU website regarding its offer, including FAQs and a webinar, available here . These FAQs include advice regarding retirement and changing indemnity provider.
We would advise any doctor with MDU membership, or considering MDU membership, to read the information carefully and listen to the webinar to help them make an informed decision. If doctors still have remaining questions they should contact the MDU to discuss these.
