People on the GPC UK

The BMA general practitioners committee (GPC) is the only body which represents all GPs in the UK. It deals with all matters affecting NHS GPs, whether or not they are BMA members.

It has 86 members, 43 of whom are directly elected regional representatives. The remainder are either elected at the Annual Representative Meeting (ARM), appointed from subcommittees or groups, or are ex officio members.

The Chairman is Dr Chaand Nagpaul.
