The Medical Defence Union (MDU) is the UK’s leading defence organisation for doctors. We are a mutual, not for profit, organisation owned by our members. Established in 1885, we were the world’s first medical defence organisation and have led the way ever since.

The MDU is proud to announce the imminent launch of its new GP GROUPCARE scheme which provides some new benefits to GP practices, in partnership with Peninsula Business Services Limited. This is an extension of the popular employment law advice line which all MDU group scheme members have had access to since it was launched more than 3 years ago.

The new benefits include an exclusive MDU member discount on Peninsula’s full employment law package and full health and safety package, which includes an insurance policy* that could help protect your practice from costs incurred due to employment law or health and safety litigation.

This exclusive discount is available only to MDU GROUPCARE PLUS and PREMIUM practices. To access these benefits you will need to contact Peninsula on 0844 892 2498 or email primarycare@peninsula-uk.com. You should have the following information to hand:

• your individual MDU member number
• your MDU GROUPCARE number and the Peninsula authorisation code.

If your practice belongs to a GROUPCARE scheme and you have already purchased a full employment law or health and safety package from Peninsula, please ring them on 0844 892 2498 with any queries about your existing Peninsula benefits. This offer excludes long standing Peninsula clients and existing MDU group scheme member practices already benefiting from lower or discounted rates.

If you are a GP practice that does not belong to a GROUPCARE scheme or you would like to discuss your GROUPCARE benefits, please ring the MDU GROUPCARE team on 0800 012 1318 or email groupcare@the-mdu.com.
