The deadline for candidates to register their opposition to the outspoken critic of coalition government NHS reforms was 9am today.

Dr Chand worked as a GP in Ashton-Under-Lyme, Lancashire, for 25 years before becoming chairman of NHS Tameside and Glossup PCT in 2009.

The BMA deputy chairman's role is a one-year term and Dr Chand was elected last year ahead of fellow GP Dr Fay Wilson, who stood this year with Londonwide LMCs chief executive Dr Michelle Drage as GPC chairman, and Dr Tom Dolphin, former chairman of the BMA junior doctors committee.

Dr Chand told GP he was looking for unity from BMA members: 'I'm very grateful to people for keeping faith with me. I'm delighted to be re-elected unopposed. All the crafts face so many challenges at the moment and it is vital that we all work together.'
