What members say

I would like to thank you for all your assistance during my recent project of updating our staff contracts and handbook. Without the service from the BMA I would have had to use a costly employment law specialist. It is hard to believe that such a good service is a standard part of our membership.

I was floundering with absolutely no idea what to do before you stepped in to help. I am so grateful. I felt you were the first person who truly had my best interests at heart and was fighting with me to get things done. I can’t tell you what that means.

I have used the BMA employer advisory service on a few occasions now. I was not sure whether it would provide the help and support we needed. How wrong could I be! The service is excellent. The advisors are knowledgeable, practical, offer fantastic support and guidance and are contactable.

We have used the employer advisory service on a number of occasions and find the advice we receive to be excellent; comprehensive advice in a timely fashion followed up with suggested wording of documents, where appropriate. They are the first point of contact whenever we feel the need to seek advice regarding employment issues.

I am a single-handed GP. When I had unpleasant issues at work I found this free service very helpful. The very professional staff gave me good legal advice, support and the ability to choose from different options. I would certainly recommend this service to everybody.
