Latest information on Coronavirus 

Helping members through the COVID-19 pandemic

Please note that we keep our Coronavirus pages updated with advice for all members. We're also working hard to provide more 1-2-1 advice than ever. 

 

Extra and Expert members: If you have a query that is not covered on our webpages, please email advice.enquiries@bda.org with your name, membership number, telephone number and your question. We will be able to reply to most queries within two working days, and will reply to you as soon as we can.

 

In relation to associate pay, we're seeking further clarification from government on a number of issues. Our most up to date advice on associate pay is set out in our webinar. Please look at section 3, Finance for practices and associates. We will update our website as soon as we have further clarification.
