Annual report and accounts

Annual report and accounts 2019

In 2019, we continued to face changes and challenges that impacted the climate in which medical and dental professionals work.

Despite these challenges, we maintained our excellent record in guiding, supporting and defending members, handling almost 27,000 calls to our 24 hour advice line. Over 98% of those calls made during working hours connected members to a specialist adviser within 20 seconds. In 2019, the DDU successfully defended 65% of claims without making a compensation payment to patients

Throughout the year, our membership team continued to provide an outstanding service to members and answered more than 149,000 calls. The team were also reaccredited by the prestigious Customer Service Excellence programme.
