The Good Doctor

Dr John Marks
Laurence Buckman

‘John Marks is something of a national treasure. He is a man whose life for more than 40 years marched in beat with that of the National Health Service. There is scarcely a medical issue or controversy in which John Marks was not involved. In all of these John Marks played more than a walk-on part. In many he was a principal actor.’ Nicholas Timmins, Financial Times

Dr John Marks qualified as medical doctor in the year that the NHS was founded. He went on to have a distinguished career from GP to Chairman of Council of the British Medical Association on which he reflects in The NHS: Beginning, Middle and End?

Laurence Buckman was elected to the BMA GPs’ Committee (GPC) in 1990, has been a negotiator for the profession since 1997 and the Chairman of the GPC since 2007.
