Significant fall in NHS hospital doctor suspensions says MDU
The MDU, which provides indemnity and medico-legal advice to over half of UK doctors, has noted a reduction in the number of hospital doctor members who have been suspended by their hospital trust over the last three years. The MDU currently has 24 NHS hospital doctor members suspended, compared to between 40 and 60 hospital consultants in March 2002.
NHS redress bill heralds new culture of openness
Responding to today’s news that the NHS Redress Bill is to be laid before Parliament, Dr Christine Tomkins, Deputy Chief Executive of the Medical Defence Union (MDU) said: “We welcome the fact that the NHS Redress Bill provides for a more consistent and open response to patients when things go wrong with their NHS hospital care. When something goes wrong with the treatment of a patient, the MDU has for 50 years advised our members to apologise if appropriate and give a full explanation of what happened.
Only insurance safeguards doctors and patients says MDU
The Medical Defence Union (MDU), the UK’s largest mutual defence organisation, today stressed that only a regulated insurance policy provides adequate safeguards for doctors and patients with negligence claims. In the light of the consultation on a draft Order1 making indemnity mandatory for practising doctors and giving the GMC power to make appropriate rules, the MDU called on the Department of Health to accept that in today’s medico-legal climate, only a regulated insurance policy will do.
Why doctors should look a gift horse in the mouth
The Medical Defence Union (MDU) is advising doctors that receiving gifts from patients can pose an ethical dilemma and it may be advisable to seek advice before accepting a present. The MDU, which offers ethical and legal advice and assistance to over half of UK doctors, says it receives around one call a week from a doctor asking for advice about receiving a gift from a patient, and that it is a more common question at this time of year.
MDU helps doctors respond to patient complaints
The Medical Defence Union, the UK’s largest medical defence organisation, today published its comprehensive guide to the NHS complaints procedure. The guide tells MDU members all they need to know if they are responding to a complaint and is particularly timely in view of the increasing numbers of complaints that GPs and hospital doctors are facing.
Patients risk going uncompensated under new Government plans
Patients who successfully prove negligence are at risk of not receiving compensation awarded to them, if Department of Health plans for mandatory doctor’s indemnity are passed unaltered, according to the Medical Defence Union (MDU), the UK’s largest medical defence organisation.
Severely Injured Patient Study
The Severely Injured Patient Study was suggested by the Royal College of Surgeons Trauma Committee in NCEPOD's first topic selection process.
