Would you like to join the DAUK commitee?

The Doctors’ Association UK is looking for a new Secretary. We are an independent, non-partisan lobbying group of doctor activists and we like to think we are a thoroughly nice bunch! We are looking for someone passionate about advocating for doctors who would like to bolster our campaigns. This may include lobbying institutions such as the GMC, meeting with members of parliament, taking a role in our flagship campaign #learnnotblame and advocating for our profession via the media. We are hoping to extend membership to all UK doctors in the near future (watch this space!) and as Secretary you would also look after our membership lists.

PRESS RELEASE: Dr Philippa Whitford MP joins the call of DAUK and over 1200 doctors for a public investigation into the GMC’s handling of Bawa-Garba

Dr Philippa Whitford MP joins The Doctors’ Association UK in leading the call of over 1200 UK doctors for a public investigation into the GMC’s handling of the Bawa-Garba case. Collectively, we call for the GMC to take responsibility for its actions and learn valuable lessons from the outcome of this case. Applying a genuinely reflective approach, as is expected of doctors in their practice, would be a significant step in restoring the confidence and trust in the GMC as a regulatory body.
