The four day conference in Bournemouth will find professionals from across the medical field meeting to discuss issues affecting them, and the dispute over pensions is expected to be top of the agenda.
This is despite the fact it is not down to be formally discussed until Thursday.
Last week’s strike was the first widespread industrial action by doctors in nearly 40 years. All non-urgent care and work was rejected by doctors, however the government claim that less than 10% of doctors took part. The BMA strongly dispute this claim.
It is thought that BMA chairman Dr Hamish Meldrum will refer to the issue during her opening speech this morning, as doctors continue to fight for their pensions. Changes to the system mean that high earners like doctors will have to contribute more and more and work for longer to earn the same amount.
The BMA have previously argued that doctors are being singled out unfairly, being far more than other public sector workers.
The Department of Health has said that there will be no new offer for pensions, while pensions expert John Ralfe told the BBC, "This is the end of a long process. The government has been talking to unions across the public sector for some time and if the BMA thinks it can do something now it is being unrealistic."
