Save money, get great benefits and protect the whole team with Practice Xtra membership.
A Practice Xtra group scheme means our world-class advice, support and protection can benefit your entire practice team, giving you added peace of mind.
You can set up a group when 50% or more of the GP partners in your practice are already with, or plan to join, Medical Protection.It's easy to arrange and can reduce the cost of membership for GPs and nurses as well as providing additional benefits to help your practice provide outstanding care. Crucially when your team are all Medical Protection members, claims and complaints involving more than one healthcare professional tend to be easier to handle and resolve - so there's less stress and disruption for everyone.
You can choose from two levels of membership depending on how many GPs in your practice are Medical Protection members.
Our 125 years’ experience has shown us that focusing on knowledge, communication and good clinical risk management is the best way to help our members stay protected. That’s why we offer membership that covers more than claims handling and legal costs.
Our ethos is to look at professional protection across your practice to help you manage the clinical, financial and regulatory pressures you face.
To set up a group arrangement, a group scheme administrator (usually the practice manager) will need to complete and return a Practice Xtra application form.
GPs who are new to Medical Protection will need to complete a GP application form and, if required, a Direct Debit instruction form. Nurses and practice managers who are new to Medical Protection will need to complete an associate application form.
Download and complete the application form and payment instruction and return it to us.

* Free membership for nurses as a benefit of Practice Xtra is provided on an indemnity-only basis. This meets the legal requirement to hold an appropriate indemnity arrangement in order to be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Indemnity-only membership doesn’t extend to the right to request assistance with disciplinary, criminal and regulatory matters and complementary nurse members may also wish to maintain membership of the RCN or a union in order to gain these benefits. Limits to the number of free memberships you’re entitled to may apply depending on the number of GPs in your practice and level of duties each nurse undertakes.

MPS launched its Striking a Balance campaign in June 2017, setting out a package of legal reforms to control the spiralling costs of clinical negligence and strike a balance between compensation that is reasonable, but also affordable.
