Implement junior doctor contract or lose funding, hospital bosses warned

Comment

Junior doctors cannot have it both ways. If they accept that they are public sector workers, with the benefits of an assured and funded training pathway, they must accept that the Government is effectively their employer, and thus sets the contract. If they don't like that, they are free to try the private sector. A collectivised State system inevitably means that the wants of the few are subjugated to the needs of the many.
