We have a number of negotiating committees, officially recognised by the health departments in national negotiations for NHS doctors and by the Doctors' and Dentists' Review Body.

Our branch of practice (BOP) committees represent and act for all doctors in each of the branches of practice, whether they are BMA members or not. The branch of practice committee structure is mirrored in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We also represent the interests of doctors and patients across a range of professional activities and special interests, promoting excellent healthcare for all.

Find out how each committee works, who is involved and how you can join.
