I got an email from the BMA this week. Periodically I have been getting emails from them in the last few months telling me what they’re doing for junior doctors. Before that I got the occasional email trying to sell me their financial services.
But this week, for the first time, I got an email from the BMA asking me to fill in a survey about what I thought of MMC.
A survey, something the BMA has never, to my knowledge, bothered to do before in the whole MMC/MTAS fiasco. All this time they’ve been ‘representing’ junior doctors and sending me emails telling me what they were doing and now, finally and too late, they’re actually asking what the people they allegedly represent think. Not there’s any guarantee they’ll listen anyway.
Why the hell haven’t they done this earlier?
