The BMA must reconnect with grassroots members

Comment

Take General Practice. Item of service payments have fallen 50% per item in 13 years. [ Decreasing profits, increasing workloads] The measure of the BMA is reflected in the collapse of Practices. NHSE admits that over 2000+ practices need resilience funding!! [ under the watch of our Union] When any doctor sees 40+ patients a day and needs resilience bail outs, it is a sad and awful reflection of the doctor's Union and the poor pay and conditions. The BMA were asked to come up with resignation a couple of years. They chose not to, but put up with more Hunt's penance. Correct Kailash, if you do not look after doctors, they won't be there to look after you.
