No Breakthrough on Junior Doctors’ Contract

A strike by Junior Doctors’ planned for 10th February will go ahead after talks between medics and managers failed to reach agreement, the British Medical Association has said.

The 24-hour walk-out will leave emergency care in place – despite initial plans for a full strike.  The decision to exclude emergency care from the strike action next week comes after polling showing very high public support for junior doctors striking as long as emergency care was not included.

David Cameron has previously warned in an interview that junior doctors could be unilaterally forced to accept the new contract if an agreement is not reached voluntarily.
