If you are a member of the BMA you may recall that when you  joined you were asked for your postal address. This is where your copy of the BMJ and BMA News is delivered each week. Like most other BMA Members you probably specified your home address.

The BMA is now in the process of asking all of it’s members who have not yet let it know where their Place of Work is to do so. This information is really important for the BMA, your Trade Union, to have as it conducts talks with the Government over your future pay and conditions, including your pension.

If you are not sure whether or not we have your Place of Work information please fill out our short online form, which only takes a moment to complete.

Alternatively, you can call us on 0300 123 1233 (8.30am to 6pm, Monday to Friday) and speak to one of our trained work information advisers. You can also send an email containing your 7 digit BMA Membership Number and Place of Work information to info.pow@bma.org.uk.
