MDU and indextra partner to support doctors with online medical library

The Medical Defence Union (MDU), the UK’s leading indemnity provider, is partnering with indextra, the comprehensive online medical library app, to offer its members discounted subscription to over 900 medical titles.

With the rise of healthcare technology and more medical professionals using online resources rather than printed publications, MDU members can access hundreds of quality medical titles including the Oxford Handbooks, ABC Series and British National Formulary. NICE guidelines and over 30 medical calculators are also available. 

Resources are available on and offline and content can be personalised by bookmarking, highlighting and annotating text. The app is available on a wide range of devices and for each member that joins, indextra gives a free subscription to a doctor in the developing world.

One user commented: ‘It’s like having a library in my pocket!'

Dr Udvitha Nandasoma, MDU medico-legal adviser said:

‘Keeping up to date can be a challenge in an increasingly pressurised working environment. Through our partnership with indextra, MDU members can get the information they need at their fingertips helping to support their decision making.’

Fredrik Josephson, chief executive officer of indextra also commented:

‘We’re delighted to be partnering with the MDU and offering members not only the opportunity to access all the medical literature they need via their phone or tablet but to also save themselves considerable time and money.’

MDU members are being offered a 40% discount on the usual subscription to the indextra library at a special price of £7.79 a month with the first two months free.

Further feedback from users includes:

‘For me as a doctor, the best thing about indextra is the rapid access to medical information, clinical guidelines and other resources that I can trust.’
‘Indextra has solved so many problems for me; the main one is getting the right, validated information I need quickly.’
