Exmouth Journal Junior doctors already work seven days a week, playing a vital role in our NHS and doing a fantastic job delivering excellent care for patients. The Government’s reforms are intended to improve patient safety and properly reward – not penalise – NHS staff, ensuring safer working hours and delivering a truly seven-day health service. We know that’s what doctors want too, so it is extremely disappointing that the BMA chose unnecessary industrial action, which helps no one, in place of negotiation. Quite frankly, it used the unwell in a nationalised health service as bargaining chips. Its operations also bordered on dishonesty. It published a fake pay calculator on its website, wrongly suggesting the pay would go down.
