Gearing up for the ARM

I’m really looking forward to the BMA’s Annual Representative’s Meeting (ARM), which starts next week, Monday June 29th.

Most of our members will no doubt be aware what the ARM is, but for anyone reading this who doesn’t know, it is basically where all policy-making decisions for the BMA are decided. It’s held in a different part of the UK each year, with everyone heading to Liverpool this year.

It should be a particularly productive ARM, with many motions being debated including a number of controversial public health and ethical issues such as assisted dying, abortion TV adverts, compulsory immunisation for children and teenage binge drinking.

Dr Andrew Dearden, Welsh Council chairman will be delivering his first speech in this capacity next Tuesday, which will be a key address for Welsh members to watch.

If you are unable to attend, you can watch events unfold online on the BMA website ( and of course, I will be blogging from there too, so you can keep up-to-date by checking my blog.
