When you visit any web site, it may store or retrieve information on your browser, mostly in the form of cookies. This information might be about you, your preferences or your device and is mostly used to make the site work as you expect it to. The information does not usually directly identify you, but it can give you a more personalised web experience.
Because we respect your right to privacy, you can choose not to allow some types of cookies. Click on the different category headings to find out more and change our default settings. However, blocking some types of cookies may impact your experience of the site and the services we are able to offer.
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms.
You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies are required
These cookies allow us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information we collect is anonymous unless you actively provide personal information to us.
If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you're in) and tailor the website to provide enhanced features and content for you.
For example, they can be used to remember certain log-in details, changes you've made to text size, font and other parts of pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you've asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. These cookies may be used to ensure that all our services and communications are relevant to you. The information these cookies collect cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Without these cookies, a website cannot remember choices you've previously made or personalise your browsing experience meaning you would have to reset these for every visit. In addition, some functionality may not be available if this category is switched off.
Our websites sometimes integrate with other companies’ sites. For example, we integrate with social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook, to make it easier for you to share what you have read. These sites place their own cookies on your browser as a result of us including their icons and ‘like’ or ‘share’ buttons on our sites.
It’s vital we know what you think so we can understand what you really need from the BMA. As a member of our Advisory Panel, you will be an active partner in discussion groups, where you can share your ideas and suggestions and help shape new initiatives and offerings. As a representative of your branch of practice, you will help us explore the needs and concerns of doctors and medical students and help us understand issues at grass root level, so that we can tailor our services accordingly. You can also network with other doctors in a friendly and informal atmosphere and learn from those in different roles, whether it be in academia or managerial.
Getting involved couldn’t be easier and all travel and reasonable expenses will be included. Advisory Panel members meet at BMA House, London, every two months. Your input will help to refine ideas for training and new services and benefits. The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, 29 June, 2:00pm-4:00pm and we would highly welcome your active participation. If you’d like to be involved in the Advisory Panel and help shape our work, email [email protected] or call Lynette George on 020 7383 6097. Apply to be a member of our BMA Advisory Panel, to shape new initiatives and gain skills for your professional development.
