The BMA must reconnect with grassroots members


You can mock me for the audacity; If I ran BMA I would make a list of injustices happening to the doctors and publish them in the website so it is clear to the press and the government. examples of injustices: 1. 28 doctors have killed them selves under GMC investigation. 2. GMC is funded by the doctors whose priority is protecting the public. In that case the GMC should be funded by the public. 3. Workload for some doctors are dangerous and this either should be stopped or compensated with higher pay. 4. Huge brain drain of UK doctors due to terrible working conditions in the NHS 5 etc. Members feedback to this system, and when there are emerging themes they are added to this list, just like the BBC rogue traders investigations! Then I would get the BMA top brass to brainstorm on how to address these injustices. And, I will take action after the members vote on the proposed actions. I will not looking for decorations like OBEs and Knighthoods in the hope of gaining confidence of the grass roots. LOL!
