BMA announces judicial review and more strike action over contract imposition


"In recent weeks I have heard from thousands of junior doctors across the country, and the resounding message is that they cannot and will not accept what the Government is trying to do." Well said and delivered Dr Malawana and the junior doctors that you have engaged with since the enforcement plans of Mr Hunt. Continuing strike action with emergency care and not accepting enforcement whatever the consequences. It is NOT SAFE OR FAIR. Many of us have children that are medical students or Junior Doctors and I want them to have a better deal than the ridiculous hours we went through especially in the climate of faster paced care and denigration by the media and a minority of the public. We have accepted far too much work and expectation as a profession. As a result it has come to this breaking point. Enough is enough. NO MORE. Whether the public support you or not we all know the "free at the point of use NHS" is coming to an end and is not sustainable at such a value for money cost at the detriment of the workers health. Good luck JDs. We as GPs are here to support you as a profession and ALSO AS YOUR GPs we are here to support your physical and mental health in whichever way is needed FOR YOU
