'Striking is just something doctors should not do'


Dr Summerton may have worked over-long hours in "his" day but that is not a sign of professionalism. neither did talking to the Government correct that form of exploitation, European legislation was far more influential. Maybe not for much longer.... There is nothing unprofessional about the junior Dr's, neither is there anything unprofessional about Mr Hunt. Our Junior Doctors are professionals who use science and understanding in order to help the public get and keep well. Mr Hunt is a professional who uses anecdote and misunderstanding (such as the multiply determined clinical "weekend effect") in order to help the Conservatives get and keep power. If Mr Hunt were prepared to listen he might hear what is being said.
