The British Medical Association (BMA)

The BMA is the doctors’ professional organisation established to look after the professional and personal needs of its members. The BMA represents doctors in all branches of medicine all over the UK. It is a voluntary association with over two-thirds of practising UK doctors in membership and an independent trade union dedicated to protecting individual members and the collective interests of doctors. Specifically, the BOA is formally represented on the BMA Central Consultants Sub Committee for T&O, including one of our Council members who leads on BMA business.

The BMA provide extensive guidance on independent practice which can be found on their website.
