Race claim settlement

The BMA has agreed a £130,000 out-of-court settlement with five doctors who claimed it refused to help them in racial discrimination cases.

The deal was hammered out at the 11th hour before the case was due to be heard at an employment tribunal.

BMA secretary Jeremy Strachan said the agreement was reached to avoid 'adverse publicity, costs and uncertainty that inevitably characterise litigation of this kind'.

The BMA has denied any liability and all parties have to pay their own legal costs.
