Backing the Junior Doctors' Strike
I attended and showed my support for the Junior Doctors Strike on the 12th January by joining the picket line at St Ann’s hospital. As they stand, the government’s planned changes to junior doctors’ contracts will mean cuts to pay, especially at evening and weekends. Clearly longer hours will compromise the safety of doctors and patients. I fully urge the government to listen to NHS staff and give junior doctors a fairer deal.
