Guides to help you with commissioning

Doctors from various branches of practice have a role to play in commissioning.


All GP practices are now required to be a member of their local CCG.

For advice about how these changes impact on your practice, read our guidance:


Local Medical Committees (LMCs)

You have a vital role in representing the views of your members as the new commissioning structures develop.
Read our advice for LMCs


Consultants and SAS doctors

We urge you to take a proactive approach to commissioning and to engage at a local level.

We need your views to help us shape BMA policy.

We have already recruited 3,000 members to our online research panel and we want you to join them.

Members are asked to complete no more than six panel surveys per year and will have the chance to enter a prize draw in a number of surveys.

Our research has:

  • Informed official BMA responses to government consultations
  • Supported our evidence to the Review Body on Doctors' and Dentists' Remuneration (DDRB)
  • Been sent to BMA Council during industrial action on pensions
