BMA moves closer to MPIG legal challenge

The BMA has moved a step closer to taking legal action over the MPIG freeze, after seeking advice from lawyers over the dispute.

This year's pay arrangements, including the pay award, a proposed £50 million investment in clinical areas, and the extended hours DES are all on hold pending the Government's response to the BMA challenge.

GPC chair Dr Laurence Buckman said this week the BMA had consulted its lawyers over the dispute.

The association believes the Government's pay award was illegal because it contravened a guarantee to uplift the MPIG annually by the same percentage as the global sum.
