How to join CCC

There are many advantages to becoming involved in our committees. You can actively influence BMA policy-making and negotiations, represent your colleagues' voices and develop your leadership skills. 

Each committee has a few routes to becoming an elected member. In the case of CCC, this is: 

ARM elections
  • Seats/term - every two years, elections for five seats on CCC, with at least one member with a special interest in palliative care and not two members from the same type of medical practice, take place for a two-session term.
  • Timeline - the nomination period opens a month before ARM and voting closes a few days after ARM.
  • Eligibility - all BMA members can stand for election but only ARM delegates can vote.

The election section below is kept up to date with details about any running elections, so make sure you keep checking it throughout the year.  



Elections to the Committee on community care are now closed.

The next elections will take place in 2022.
