The MDU is the UK’s leading medical defence organisation. We are a mutual, not-for-profit organisation owned by our members — doctors, dentists and other healthcare professionals.   Since 1885, we have been indemnifying healthcare professionals for incidents arising from their clinical care of patients.

Professional medical indemnity from the MDU can offer much more than financial assistance when things go wrong. We guide, support and defend members throughout their entire career.

  • Confidentiality
  • Consent
  • Ethics
  • Compliance

Members can also take advantage of the MDU learn and develop programme which offers CPD, training and revalidation support.
