GMC fees battle lost by BMA6th October 2008
Following the British Medical Association's loss of its legal challenge to stop GPs over 65 paying fees to the GMC, one thousand GPs will have to pay out the annual retention fee (ARF).
BMA chair Dr Hamish Meldrum said: "We felt it necessary to pursue this case on behalf of the thousands of retired doctors who have given years of service to the NHS and felt let down by the changes to the ARF by the GMC. The BMA will consider the details of this judgement and has not ruled out the possibility of an appeal."
