​The CMM (committee for medical managers) supports medical managers by:

  • acting as an advisory body for council on medical management issues
  • raising the profile of medical leadership and management in the health service
  • providing a forum for medical managers to debate medical management issues.


Our priorities

Contractual guidance

There is wide variation in the type of contracts of employment and methods of pay for medical managers. Even though there is not a nationally agreed standard that covers all medical managers - except for board medical directors in NHS Scotland - it is important for doctors engaging in these roles to be aware of their rights and check that the employment offer and working arrangements are fit for purpose. Our guidance attempts to ensure that all medical managers receive appropriate terms and conditions regardless of their employer.

Promoting medical leadership and management

The committee is working with the junior doctors committee to promote management roles and the leadership and management career pathway among junior doctors. The committee is also working on the development of a leadership offer for our members.

Brexit and the workforce

The BMA is focused on ensuring that the NHS and medical research in the UK can attract and retain the workforce it needs after leaving the European Union. This work includes ensuring mutual recognition of professional qualifications. The committee will continue to be closely involved with BMA work on Brexit as it progresses.
