BMA may appeal High Court GMC fee ruling

The BMA may still appeal against Friday's High Court decision which ruled that older GPs will still have to pay their £390 GMC annual retention fee (ARF).

BMA chairman Dr Hamish Meldrum said he was disapointed the High Court did not agree with the BMA’s view.

'We felt it necessary to pursue this case on behalf of the thousands of retired doctors who have given years of service to the NHS and felt let down by the changes to the ARF by the GMC,’ said Dr Meldrum.

'The BMA will consider the details of this judgement and has not ruled out the possibility of an appeal.’
