Twenty GPs have been elected to the BMA council for 2018-2022, including current GP Committee chair and the ex-chair of the RCGP.
Of the 64 newly-elected council members nearly one third were GPs, and included GPC chair Dr Richard Vautrey, ex-chair of the RCGP Professor Clare Gerada and Tower Hamlets LMC chair Dr Jackie Applebee.
GPC clinical and prescribing policy lead Dr Andrew Green was also elected.
A BMA spokesperson said: ‘It is encouraging to see a higher proportion of female members of council compared to previous elections. Congratulations to the successful candidates, who will start in post in late June’.
