I can’t find the paper.Interesting, cheers for that, it was very informative. Is the GMC’s paper available to the public? It seems the BMA info relates to doctors who are employed as doctors in a clinical or med role. The interesting grey area has always been the MO’s who side-step from clinical roles for a posting into eg. non-med staff roles or pilot roles, does it address that?
IIRC it says any Doctor that has a GMC number and is practicing, is a Doctor, and thus covered by their ethical interpretation.
My understanding of RAMC who become Pilots attached to AAC suspend their GMC registration for the period, and then have to re-validate when they come back to doctor-ing.
MOs who have transitioned to the Command and Staff cadre are only involved in J4 Med roles, which are ethically appropriate. I know of no MO who is, say, SO2 Joint Targets etc.
