#IamHadiza: GPs share stories of when it could have been them

Comment

The defence organisations and BMA have the power to advise junior doctors to refuse to work shifts if they turn up and the rota is understaffed or if inadequate senior cover is present AND THAT If the doctor chooses to work in this situation ( for the sake of their patients )they must have a signed waiver by Mr Hunt, the chief executive of the hospital and the GMC that they will not be held criminally responsible for any errors or omissions which occur on that shift BEFORE UNDERTAKING ANY PATIENT CARE . In addition all patients and/or their families should be informed ,in writing ,that this is the situation for their shift and given the phone number of the chief executive of the hospital should they be unhappy with the risks being taken . Junior doctors committee should start a petition to parliament to debate this .
