Responding to the proposed strike action by junior doctors, Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
The BMA should call off this dangerous strike and return to the negotiating table before patients suffer, not least because they insist that patient safety is their paramount concern. The current contract is a shambles, making costs unpredictable for the NHS, encouraging doctors to under-report hours and allowing them to work dangerous shift patterns. The proposed contract may not be perfect, but it represents a significant improvement for both patients and the NHS.
