8th February 2006 in the Cabinet War Rooms and Churchill Museum, London. Over 50 consultants from MACs and specialist organisations attended this Council meeting. Reports on this meeting have been circulated to subscribing members. There was considerable concern expressed about developments in private practice in relation to initiatives by BUPA Insurance. The meeting resolved to promote the quality agenda via a FIPO Clinical Governance Advisory Committee (FIPO CGAC). The new BUPA Insurance re-registration contract for consultants was rejected by a unanimous vote. The BMA has been asked to try and renegotiate this.
