About us

Medical Defence Shield (MDS) is a unique organisation supporting doctors and dentists by providing clinical defence and employment protection under a single umbrella.

We are a not-for-profit and autonomous organisation conceptualised by BAPIO (British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin) and established in 2010.

MDS is now recognised as one of the four main defence organisations providing services to the medical fraternity in the United Kingdom.

Our experts deal with an array of problems faced by members including contract and pay queries, grievances, clinical negligence, coroner’s inquests, clinical complaints, disciplinary procedures, GMC investigations and COVID-19 related queries.

Our legal team works to the standards set and approved by the SRA (Solicitors Regulatory Authority).
