Implement junior doctor contract or lose funding, hospital bosses warned


‘The recruitment process should be based on patient and service need and quality of training as it always has been. Therefore implementation of the national contract will be a key criterion for HEE in making its decisions on our investment in training posts.’ Why should patient and service need and quality of training be affected by varying the contract? The short answer is that there is no necessary connection and this is being manufactured as an excuse to bully. The health service really needs to get its act together as a generation of young doctors are soon just going to turn their back on a bullying manipulative deceitful employer and quite rightly turn their sought after skills down other avenues. Medical schools now have a responsibility at selection to point out that the Department of Health is a rogue organisation and they should get propsective students to sign disclaimers confirming that they have been warned!
