Your Professional Indemnity


Dear member,


As you are aware Peninsula Postgraduate Education has arranged for your professional indemnity to be provided by MDDUS.


As your local MDDUS representative I want to remind you of the benefits of membership that are available to you.


Cover for work out-with the training programme

In recognition of the fact that many trainees undertake additional clinical work out-with the training programme you also enjoy access to medico-legal assistance and professional indemnity, free of charge, for:-


  • NHS indemnified work eg hospital locum sessions*
  • Non-NHS work eg crowd Doctor at a musical festival or sports event
  • Private practice – under the direction of a senior colleague, such as a Consultant, who has overall responsibility for the patient’s clinical care. Should earnings for private practice exceed £10,000 per annum supplementary cover should be purchased from MDDUS*

Exclusive CPD verified online learning

As a member of MDDUS you have access to our e-Learning risk resource, a free and interactive online tool that has been designed specifically for GPST’s and GPs. It highlights some of the most common areas of medico-legal risk in general practice and offers guidance and practical advice on achieving best practice. In addition our video modules provide access to specifically commissioned interviews by guest speakers on a range of risk related topics.

MDDUS Publications

MDDUS produce a range of publications for members, both in hard and electronic format and you will soon receive our quarterly title Summonsand bi-annual GPST.


Medico-Legal Assistance

Our experience team of Medico-Legal Advisers are available to you 24 hours a day. Should you require advice or guidance call 0845 270 2034.


Cancel existing defence organisation membership

It is important that you now cancel any existing membership with an alternative provider eg MPS or MDU as dual cover may result in complications should a claim or complaint be made against you.


I wish you the best of luck with your training. If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Kind regards
