General Medical Council Elections
Quite a few CMF members have contacted the CMF Office to enquire about whether any of those standing for the General Medical Council are members of CMF. John Jenkins (Northern Ireland) is the only CMF member standing. Philip Howard of the Guild of Catholic Doctors is also standing. Former CMF General Secretary Andrew Fergusson will not be seeking re-election.
