BMA letter to Conservative Party leadership candidates
BMA council chair Phil Banfield wrote to Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss asking for a commitment from the future Prime Minister to take urgent action and address pay restoration, punitive pension taxation rules, and the workforce crisis.
Health and social care reform
The Government has passed the Health and Care Act 2022 which proposes health reforms in England.
We actively lobbied policy makers through direct meetings, consultation responses, parliamentary briefings and media work to ensure the Bill and consequent Act, addressed our concerns.
