Letter of Resignation from the British Medical Association Council
Excerpt from the BMA Chief Executive Keith Ward's letter dated July 4, 2014
'..I am not in a position to authorise mailout of the July Council papers to you. However, I do not wish to fetter your engagement with BMA Council and will be prepared to forward the July Council papers to you upon receipt of a formal undertaking (attached) to treat the Council documents marked confidential as confidential. Secondly, I have asked the Director of Legal Services to set up an investigation and also call an Interim Measures Panel Article 14 (8) who will be able to assess the likely ongoing risk to the Association whilst the investigation is underway and also potentially have the power to suspend you from all BMA offices you hold with immediate effect pending the outcome of the investigation.'
