Junior Doctors on Strike

by Martin Wrigley on 27 April, 2016

As I walked to my meeting in London today I passed St Mary’s Hospital, and the crowd of doctors outside.

They have my full support, I have a real issue with the misuse of statistics and approach that Jeremy Hunt has taken.  Doctors aren’t natural strikers, and the fact that they are out there shows how far they are being pushed around.

Does the health minister think that if he breaks the doctors, the rest of the public service unions will also fall…  I cant help thinking that he is forcing this issue to make his political point.

Surely it is down to the health minister to stop grandstanding and stop trying to impose his ideas and to start talking.
