Response to the BMA's suspension of the first phase of junior doctors' industrial action

A Department of Health spokesperson said: 

"The public will be relieved that the BMA has decided to call off the first phase of these unprecedented strikes, so this is welcome news. But if the BMA were really serious about patient safety, they would immediately cancel their remaining plans for industrial action which, as the GMC says, will only cause patients to suffer.
