Headline

Junior doctors to stage full walk-out under BMA plans for industrial action

Comment

This is a vitally important decision by the BMA - to fully back our junior doctor colleagues. Now is the time for all consultants, GPs and other non-junior doctors to visibly and powerfully get behind junior doctors. If the Government manages to impose a contract on junior doctors they will be emboldened to do the same to other groups of doctors and then to other NHS staff. I urge colleagues to support whatever decision junior doctors make in their efforts to convince the Government to withdraw its threat of imposition of an unfair and unsafe contract and enter into meaningful negotiations. Here is a link to Tower Hamlets GPs expressing support: https://t.co/GcMH60luEY And to Barts consultants showing support https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEyvZeV1aeU
