Report on 17 March Meeting, BMA House, London

11.33 am

I am at BMA House, the national headquarters, today. I have Hamish Meldrum, Chair of BMA Council, sitting directly facing me at the moment – I am at the heart of the action.

I have just finished my meeting on the Welfare Subcommittee – we discussed student Mental Heatlh, Exam Timetables, the Medical Schools Charter, Student Fitness to Practice and the BMA Welfare website.

1.46 pm

This morning the Chair of MSC, Tim Crocker-Buque, and chairs of the Education, Finance, Welfare and devolved nation committees gave us reports on their work since the last meeting. We also discussed Widening Participation. After a brief lunch break we are about to start the afternoon chunk of the agenda.

Long afternoon. We discussed the Foundation Program, Tomorrow’s Doctors, Communicating with student BMA members,  and BMA-wide projects (Junior Doctors Contract, Workforce Planning, Revalidation, EWTD)
