BMA statement: Pension action events postponed

The BMA has postponed events scheduled to take place in March about the nature of industrial action doctors would be asked to take on changes to NHS pensions.

Planning for the first industrial action by doctors in almost 40 years is extremely challenging. Given our commitment to protect patient safety and the legislative minefield that we have to navigate, it is vital that the plans for action we will be asking members to take are as robust as possible before they are shared.

Despite a huge amount of work having been done as part of an evolving process, there are still some complex issues that have to be resolved.

We have informed all the doctors due to attend the postponed events, and apologised for any inconvenience caused.
