How we are doing

Our membership team has again achieved the Customer Service Excellence Standard (CSE), a recognised independent benchmark of excellent customer service. 

We are also the proud recipients of the Princess Royal Training award 2018 in recognition of the high quality of induction training implemented within the DDU. We are delighted to be the first medical defence organisation to achieve this accolade.

Service performance

We want our members to receive a better level of service than they would receive elsewhere. To achieve this, our membership team sets stringent performance targets and regularly surveys members to see how our service is being received. The feedback we obtain guides improvements to our service.
