BAPIO is a non-profit organisation open to all healthcare professionals, promoting diversity, equality and inclusion.
Since conception in 1996 with the initial aim of supporting international medical graduates, BAPIO has grown in stature and influence to become one of the largest organisations of its type in the country. We are represented through our numerous divisions covering all regions of the UK as well multiple sub forums. We collaborate regularly with the General Medical Council, Health Education England and the Royal Colleges to monitor, highlight and address the difficulties faced by doctors and ensure positive systems are in place to support healthcare workers. We focus on supporting and promoting professional links with International organisations as well providing charitable relief focusing on providing better health care globally.
We have successfully carried out many campaigns and have come a long way in reducing the inherent inequality in many aspects of education, training and career progression.
We have five arm’s length organisations:- Medical Defence Shield, BAPIO Training Academy , BAPIO Institute for Health Research, BAPIO Faculty of Leadership and British Indian Nurses Association
This years' annual conference will celebrate the achievements of BAPIO in Breaking Barriers and focus on laying the foundation for the future activities in Bridging the Gaps.
The event will be attended by national and international leaders in Medicine and medico-politics. Organisations like GMC, BMA, HEE will join us along with Indian High Commission and Indian Consulate. The 23rd October Saturday night will feature entertainment and awards ceremony and will be open to friends and families.
