We can help...
MDDUS has been providing support and indemnity to medical and dental professionals for over 120 years. We pride ourselves on offering a quality, personalised service provided by our team of medico- and dento-legal advisers who are recognised as some of the leading UK experts in their field.
As a mutual organisation, one of the most valuable benefits of membership is that MDDUS doesn't have shareholders and does not pay dividends to its members. That means all the income generated by subscriptions is invested back into the organisation and member services, and in the maintenance of a healthy reserve to cover legal costs and claims.
