The Campaign for the NHS Reinstatement Bill backs junior doctors

The Campaign for the NHS Reinstatement Bill backs the junior doctors.

The erosion of junior doctors terms and conditions of service and attempts by government to introduce local pay bargaining through the imposition of a national contract is part and parcel of the break up and privatisation of our NHS in England.

We encourage everyone to support the junior doctors action and ask that MPs attend the second reading of the NHS Bill on March 11th. This Bill would reinstate the NHS as a national service throughout England. Junior doctors are not striking in Scotland and Wales where the NHS is not being dismantled and privatised.

The BMA support for the junior doctors remains strong and so must its support for the reinstatement of the NHS. BMA policy is to support the NHS Bill.
