In Solidarity with Junior Doctors

In case you missed it- here is an email we sent out in relation to the Junior Doctor’s contracts.


In Solidarity with Junior Doctors

Jeremy Corbyn has just responded to Jeremy Hunt’s announcement that he will impose a contract on junior doctors: 

“Jeremy Hunt’s decision to impose a contract on junior doctors is provocative and damaging. Rather than helping to resolve this difficult dispute, his action will only inflame it.

The BMA has continued to table proposals to settle the dispute. The fact that the Health Secretary is now simply trying to impose his will rather than negotiate, demonstrates a lack of confidence in his own arguments.

We need to recognise the huge contribution junior doctors make and the years of training they go through to look after us. These are people dedicated to our health and our NHS.

Patients, doctors, the BMA and the public want an agreed settlement. What is now keeping this dispute going are the actions of the Secretary of State himself.

More strikes now look likely. If that happens, it will be clear that the blame lies with the government, not the doctors.

Even at this late stage, I appeal to Jeremy Hunt to go back and negotiate with the BMA.

This government is reckless with our NHS and is now prepared to put patient care at risk in the service of its self-defeating austerity programme.”

Dear Julian,
I am writing to you to express great sadness that the junior doctors contract is going to be imposed upon them by Jeremy Hunt, and that further negotiating is not going to take place. 
I have signed several petitions expressing this view, and I believe my view is shared by most of the public.
Junior doctors are the backbone of our NHS, and deliver great care day after day 7 days a week.
This is why I appeal to you to listen to our views, and challenge Jeremy Hunt on his controversial actions.
I look forward to hearing from you, and your views on this issue.
Regards, …………..
