MDDUS responds to MDU 50 per cent rate cut for GPs in England


For immediate release: Thursday, 12 October 2017

MDDUS chief executive Chris Kenny responds to MDU’s 50% subscription rate cut for GPs in England.

“Before contemplating a claims-made model, MDDUS is seeking firm assurances that our members will not be presented with a large bill for ‘run off’ at the point of transition in to a Government-backed scheme.

“We do not wish to lead our members down a path that they later regret, from the perspective of both affordability and of quality of service. Anybody considering MDU’s offer should take care to understand the implications of transferring only part of their risk in this way and be aware of the potential of thousands of pounds being required to purchase extended benefit rights.”
