Current PLG members include Amanda Cool (chair), Glenys Goodwill (deputy chair), Jacquelyn Adams, Elias Phiri and Jenny Wigram

Those looking to help shape and influence decision-making at the BMA are urged to put themselves forward for the association’s PLG (patient liaison group).

The PLG is seeking doctors and non-medics with keen interests in health policy and patient care to take up the positions, starting in May.

The two positions – for a doctor member and lay member – are both undertaken voluntarily, with those appointed to the doctor role serving a three-year term.

Doctors applying to the group cannot have served on any BMA UK or national council, standing committee, board or other BMA UK representative groups in the preceding two years, or be a candidate for election to such groups.

Successful applicants will attend three whole-day PLG meetings per session, contribute to BMA work areas and put forward matters for consideration with regard to future BMA policy development.

The deadline for applications is 24 March.
