For immediate release
Responding to an announcement that junior doctors will strike for five more days, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
“Brits are growing impatient for a return to the fully-functioning health service that they deserve.
“Whilst the right to strike is important, doctors are asking for a pay rise that taxpayers cannot afford and which patients are paying the price for.
“An agreement must be reached that respects the valuable work that doctors perform while ensuring a fair deal for taxpayers.”
