NHS consultant membershipDon’t be caught off guard – get protected from just £549*
Did you know that over 37,000 complaints were received by the GMC in the last 5 years?†
Nearly 1/3 of doctors are likely to be called upon as part of an inquest during their career.††
Unfortunately, 1 in 4 consultants will receive at least 1 formal complaint during their working life. †††
The state may cover you financially, but who is there to defend your reputation and give you expert advice and guidance when you need it?
Having independent legal representation by your side and a team of experts to provide advice and guidance can make all the difference.

What you will need to complete your quote:
A full case history, also known as letter of good standing, will be required to support your application if you have held indemnity or insurance with any other providers in the last ten years (periods of state indemnity are not required). Please send us your case history from previous indemnifiers within 42 days of your application being accepted. If we do not receive this within 42 days, or if the information doesn’t match your application form, it could lead to your membership being cancelled.
Sometimes we need to check the information you have provided in your application (for example if you have had a claim in the past). This will mean that, at the end of your online application, you will be told that it has been referred. It can take up to five days for this to be investigated, but your application will still be progressing in the meantime and we will aim to get back to you sooner than that wherever possible.
