The President of the World Medical Association (WMA), Dr. Osahon Enabulele, has congratulated Sir Ian Gilmore on his inauguration as President of the British Medical Association (BMA).
The WMA President stated this while speaking on his attendance at the Annual Representative Meeting (ARM) of the British Medical Association which held in Liverpool, United Kingdom, from July 3-5, 2023.
The WMA President commended the immediate Past President of the BMA, Professor Martin Mckee, for leading an impactful tenure, and urged successor to work very hard to sustain and improve upon the achievements recorded by his predecessor in office.
While looking forward to the continued contributions of the BMA to the affairs of the World Medical Association, including their participation at the forthcoming WMA General Assembly billed for Kigali, Rwanda, Dr. Enabulele assured the British Medical Association of the sustained support of the WMA.
The WMA President also used the opportunity to urge the British Government to embrace the far reaching resolutions taken at the BMA ARM, particularly as it concerns the welfare, working conditions, safety, and professional career of physicians and other health professionals, the state of the National Health Service, and the overall quality of health care delivered to the people.

Dr. Enabulele particularly urged the British Government to partner more with the BMA to address existing challenges, such as health inequities and the delivery of equitable and improved health care services to the people, with improved health outcomes.
The Annual Representative Meeting (ARM) of the British Medical Association is the highest decision making body of the BMA, and holds annually to address issues pertaining to the organization and the UK health system, amongst many other issues.
This year’s BMA ARM witnessed the participation of many representatives and invited guests. It also coincided with the 75th Anniversary of the National Health Service.
The WMA President has since departed Liverpool for another assignment.
