Voluntary Role - Commencing July 2020

The BMA is the voice of doctors and medical students in the UK. The Patient Liaison Group (PLG) provides the BMA with an informed patient view on critical matters of interest to the profession, and to patients.

We are looking to recruit four new lay members on a voluntary basis commencing in July 2020 and would welcome applications from a diverse range of backgrounds.

The individuals will have an active interest in influencing health policy and working to improve patient care. Your experience may be lay or professional, as a carer or patient, as a member of a disease-interest group or as a member of a local or national patient-interest group. Whichever your area of experience, you are asked to contribute to the PLG as an individual (not as a representative from another organisation). You should be IT literate with previous experience of working on, or with, committees and a broad understanding of the NHS and the role of doctors in the UK.

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

The meeting dates are notified in advance of the beginning of every session, which at BMA runs from July to June. Provisional dates for the meeting dates for the 2020-21 session will be provided at interview.
