'Striking is just something doctors should not do'


Would this be Dr Summerton, who's surgery is not open on weekends or after 6pm, telling junior doctors that they should just shut up and work more weekends/ evenings/ nights. I would put to this chap that the professional thing to do, would be to volunteer to cover A+E every other weekend to help out. There is no need to be paid extra, because he is already being paid as a GP. Good luck with that.
