'Historic' junior doctor agreement will pave way for seven-day NHS, says Hunt

Comment

Looking around social media fora today, it looks like the juniors are already rejecting this contract. Obviously it doesn't help that much of the detail isn't published but at first glance it seems the BMA have agreed they can work a lot harder for much less money. Agreeing flatter pay for antisocial hours is the thin end of a massive wedge and a serious attack on the juniors terms and pay, doctors with families will really struggle. The BMA will have a tought time convincing everyone that this is all over, especially in the context of the GP crisis.
