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


Dear All, It looks like a lot less than what i'd expect a grassroots junior to be expecting considering the massive and coherent support they enjoyed from not only within the NHS but also the public. The message that Mr Hunt is the liar that he is is now getting through despite the obstacles thrown up by our 21st century media. There's a lot of critical detail that has not yet been agreed. Mr Hunt has won a fantastic media coup; the agreement on both sides that agreement has been reached despite the fact that the details have not actually been determined is a win win for him. If now in the discussions about the unresolved details there is an impasse about, for instance, the right for a husband to work close to where his wife and child live, break down, it will be the Juniors / BMA who will be the shameful party. Well done Mr Hunt. As others have said this is not over. I will eat my hat if the juniors vote to accept what appears to be a less than mutual achievement outcome. Regards Paul C
