"No" vote in the Scottish Referendum

AS most members will no doubt be aware, the outcome of yesterday’s Independence Referendum was a vote in favour of Scotland remaining part of the United Kingdom. At a political level this marks the start of a period of negotiation on the added powers that are to be devolved to Scotland as indicated by the “Better Together” campaign.

MDDUS does not anticipate that there will be any great impact on our day-to-day operations. We will of course watch developments closely and consult as appropriate with key stakeholders both in Scotland and the rest of the UK to ensure that the interests of all our members are taken into account.

I want to emphasise that the Union remains as financially strong today as it was yesterday and will continue to provide a high quality, expert service to all our members regardless of where they practise.

Professor Gordon Dickson, CEO of MDDUS
