It costs your practice nothing extra to set up a Practice Xtra group – it’s just a way of bringing all our GPs together into a single group while continuing to provide world-class defence, advice and support to them.

You can choose from two levels of benefits to reward this cooperative approach. This level depends on how many GPs there are in your practice and how many are Medical Protection members.

Gold benefits are for practices where 80% or more of GPs or GP partners are Medical Protection members (minimum 2 GP scheme members).

Silver benefits are for practices where 50% or more of GP partners are Medical Protection members (minimum 2 GP scheme members).

Both gold and silver members are entitled to key benefits including: 

  • Free membership (indemnity only) for nurses and practice managers (limits may apply).  
  • Access to membership for pharmacists, physiotherapists, paramedics and physician’s associates.
  • Free access to business advice line from our partners Croner – includes employment law and health and safety advice.
  • Market-leading training and risk management 
  • Practice Matters journal, risk alerts and online resources.

Gold members also receive premium benefits including:

  • Discounts on GP membership.  
  • Free risk management consultation and report.
  • Annual subscription to Croner-i Professional Practice Manager.
  • Textbook packs to support GP trainees.


The number of GPs in your practice group affects the number of nurses employed by your practice that we can provide free access to indemnity for (along with the level of duties they undertake). The more GPs who are Medical Protection members, the more you benefit. Find out more about nurse membership through Practice Xtra.
