Membership benefits

Advice that goes the extra mile

Our dedicated medicolegal team are only a phone call away and our advice line is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in an emergency. The number of times you call won’t affect your subscription and you will have access to legal assistance that goes beyond indemnity for patient claims.

Beyond patient claims

Don’t compromise on your protection because we won’t. State indemnity only goes so far – so while you may be covered financially if a claim is made, it’s essential you have someone looking out for you if you need to deal with a General Medical Council (GMC) matter, coroner inquest, or disciplinary problem.

Support with unexpected risks

Discretionary protection means we can treat each incident on an individual basis, giving you access to protection for a wider range of scenarios.

Exclusive offers

We don’t just offer NQGPs a special two-year price offer, you will also receive a free GP career planning guide, produced in partnership with Emedica, and have access to our CPD-verified risk management courses, which are available online and provided at no extra cost to members.

Comprehensive defence

We’re proud to offer professional indemnity around the world, with almost 85% of medical claims and potential claims successfully defended worldwide in 2020.

Here for you throughout your career

With occurrence-based support you can be confident that we are here for you now and into the future without the need for additional membership if you leave or retire.

A whole world of wellbeing

Whether you want to lower your stress levels, improve your sleep, or reduce burnout, we can help you take positive steps to better mental wellbeing. Newly qualified GPs can access our full wellbeing hub, with counselling available at no extra cost.

I am a GP - I am with Medical Protection

We don't do things by halves

Unless it’s the price you pay. GPs who join as an NQGP member, and GP trainees with Medical Protection membership who renew as an NQGP member, can save up to 50%* in their first year of practice, and up to 30% in their second year, compared to standard GP membership.

* Saving applies to any standard GP subscription for partners, salaried GPs and locums in England and Wales and is subject to individual circumstances. This offer is for GPs who join as an NQGP member and GP trainees with Medical Protection membership who renew as an NQGP member and cannot be combined with any other price offer. Special rates are also available for NQGPs in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
