Appointment of MDDUS non-executive directors

MDDUS is looking to appoint two new non-executive members to its Board

MDDUS is a mutual defence organisation, founded by and for healthcare professionals across the UK. It has an expert staff of doctors, dentists, lawyers and risk advisers offering access to medico- and dento-legal assistance and professional indemnity. The organisation has offices in Glasgow and London and provides its 38,000-plus active members with access to a wide range of services.

The Board is the governing body of MDDUS and includes medical, dental and non-clinical directors. Its role is to provide leadership of MDDUS within a framework of effective governance and controls; to set the strategy and to monitor its delivery; and to set the values and standards of MDDUS and to ensure that it meets its obligations to the membership.

MDDUS is looking to appoint two new non-executive members to its Board. One will bring experience of practising as a GP in England, and the other will bring knowledge of medical schools and/or early-stage postgraduate medical training. Applicants should have an interest in the work of MDDUS, the current debates, risks and opportunities in medical services developments, especially in England, and, ideally, medical regulatory and/or medico-legal strategy matters.

This is an excellent opportunity for medical professionals who are keen to broaden their experience of business and Board-level work. The post is remunerated and requires a time commitment of no more than two days per month.

Closing date for applications is Monday 23 January 2017 (noon). Please note that the final interviews for these positions will take place in early March.

We recognise the benefits in having a diverse Board and wider workforce with different backgrounds, solely appointed on ability.
