people who look at this thinking that all they want is more pay are delusional cnts
You have a lack of insight. The government have imposed their will on a population that work hugely in excess of the hours they are paid for. We are struggling to manage the service we have as there is a severe shortage of doctors and nurses. In order to run a seven day service those staff will have to increase the hours they work and in no time we will be back to the 90 hour weeks that happened in the early 90's. The junior doctors worked on contracts that at night earnt them an hourly rate that was less than the porters and it was entirely normal for the doctor that attended you following an RTA on a Sunday afternoon to have been working non stop, often only with an hour or two's sleep since 7.30 on the Friday morning. How can we go back to that? The BMA have been trying to sort this out for years ,we in the medical professions all know how serious this is.This action is a last result. There will still be cover in emergencies from the consultants, they have the skill and the knowledge the juniors don't yet have. Remember they are the ones that worked the 90 hour weeks and will get the job done.
