BMA announces new frontline doctor partnership

The British Medical Association has announced a new partnership with HEROES: Help them help us to protect the physical and mental well-being of doctors on the frontline during the coronavirus pandemic.

The doctors’ trade union recently launched an online fundraising page, BMA Giving, which will combine efforts with HEROES to fund tangible benefits for doctors and medical students working to tackle coronavirus. Through their collaboration, donations from the public will be disbursed across charities whose aim is to support doctors on the frontline so that they can focus on providing vital treatment for patients.

David Wrigley, deputy chair of the BMA Council, said: “The BMA is delighted to be working with HEROES to help support doctors on the frontline during what will be an extremely difficult time for the NHS. Doctors will be tested to their limits over the coming weeks and months as the NHS faces unprecedented pressures and it is absolutely vital that their physical and mental wellbeing is supported.

“This new collaboration will help to direct these generous donations to doctor and medical student focused charities where they will benefit colleagues the most. This in turn helps the BMA to look after doctors and medical students so that they can continue to look after their patients.”

HEROES: Help them help us is a new fund which aims to deliver support to all NHS workers who are currently working to treat affected patients as well as helping to curb the spread of coronavirus.
