Comments on the BMA WhatsApp leak

May 26, 2016 1:34 PM

Commenting on the revelation that the BMA was seeking to maximise disruption, and put money before patient safety, Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

"Patients will be appalled to discover that far from being concerned for their safety, the BMA has been playing a 'political game' to maximise disruption in the NHS. It’s now clear as day that they had no intention of entering serious negotiations and that it was all about getting as much taxpayers' money as they possibly could.

"If they felt their members were being underpaid, they should have made the case honestly instead of engineering a dispute that has led to thousands of operations being cancelled."
