The Medical Ethics Committee
The Medical Ethics Committee (MEC) is made up of BMA members from a wide range of specialties and experience and lay members who are experts in their field of theology, law and moral philosophy.
The Committee debates ethical issues on the relationship between the medical profession, the public and the state. It also liaises with the General Medical Council (GMC) on all matters of ethics affecting medical practice.
The Committee is supported by the Ethics Secretariat who also produce detailed guidance and discussion papers on a wide range of medico-ethical issues and offer individual ethical advice to members over the phone or email.
