Our raison d’etre is to help our fellow doctors manage their professional lives

Increased legislative and regulatory pressures, demanding clinical workloads and diminishing administrative resources are now resulting in a situation that is overwhelming for many doctors

One of our core priorities is to help members address the challenges of Revalidation and Relicensing. However we plan to introduce a range of member services.

We provide structure and services to help our members meet their regulatory and compliance obligations.

Our member services are both comprehensive and flexible in their range.
The medical Support Union recognises that doctors work in a diverse range of settings
In consequence we offer an individually tailored service with as much or as little support as required.

For members who work in well supported environments our core service is robust defensible and independent appraisal and responsible officer service leading to revalidation/ recertification and relicensing.

For members working in poorly resourced and supported environments, who may be time poor and placed at a disadvantage by the legislative and regulatory burden, we offer a continuous approach, with a full concierge service to assist in the management of your portfolio, a programmed framework of reminders and regular guidance meetings to ensure that you remain on track.

At present our process are a mixture of paper based and electronic.
Our intention is to swiftly move towards an entirely on line service.
