Resources for you

  • Your first point of contact

    For general queries, your first port of call is the Committee services team - they can help with practical and procedural issues and can also put you in touch with policy experts.

    Alternatively, you could refer to the committee induction pack which covers everything you need to know about being a committee member, from expenses and honoraria to childcare to the BMA code of conduct.

  • BMA corporate policies

    As a member of a BMA committee, you are expected to follow the guidelines and policies in place to protect you and the organisation. Please make sure you familiarise yourself with the policies within this section.

    The BMA has a range of training to help you to develop in your committee member role. Information about mentoring and training is available.
