'Striking is just something doctors should not do'


Is it unprofessional to take the long view? We all know the government is changing contracts to tee it up for privatisation. This would lead to worse and more expensive care for patients. Anyone in the know will tell you this. Short term pain for long term gain. If this means losing public sympathy short term then who cares? Ultimately patients need doctors more than doctors need them and they will realise it in the end.
