Response to BMA's strike announcement

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Junior doctors' contract

The British Medical Association has today announced that it has postponed next week's planned strike by junior doctors.

A Department of Health spokesperson said:

The strike that took place last week  was unnecessary while talks are ongoing, so it’s extremely welcome news that the BMA has suspended next week’s action, though as it stands emergency care will still be withdrawn in February. In the end, the Government and junior doctors want to do the same thing by improving patient care at weekends – and we look forward to further constructive discussions.
