New BMA GP committee chair

23rd July 2007

The British Medical Association (BMA) has a new chair of its General Practitioners Committee.

Dr Laurence Buckman was elected to the post following the appointment of former GPC chair Hamish Meldrum as BMA chairman. The previous BMA chairman, James Johnson, resigned in May amid suggestions he had failed to appreciate the strength of feeling among junior doctors anger over the way training posts appointments were being handled under MTAS.

Dr Buckman is a GP in north London and has been a member of the committee since 1991. He fought off competition from five other candidates.
