Response to BMA strike announcement

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

A Department of Health spokesperson said:

“This escalation of industrial action by the BMA is both desperate and irresponsible – and will inevitably put patients in harm’s way.

"If the BMA had agreed to negotiate on Saturday pay, as they promised to do through ACAS in November, we’d have a negotiated agreement by now – instead, we had no choice but to proceed with proposals recommended and supported by NHS leaders.”
