Docs told: Pre­pare to strike

Nuneaton Telegraph - - NEWS -

JU­NIOR doc­tors have been told to pre­pare for strike ac­tion as talks be­tween the Bri­tish Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion (BMA) and the Gov­ern­ment have yet pro­duce an agree­ment, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.

Walk­outs were sus­pended last month fol­low­ing five days of ne­go­ti­a­tions on medics’ pro­posed new con- tracts, but talks ap­pear to have again reached an im­passe ahead of a Mon­day dead­line.

The Guardian said Dr Jo­hann Malawana, chair­man of the BMA’s ju­nior doc­tors com­mit­tee, told his mem­bers in an up­date that while “sig­nif­i­cant ground has been made... there are still some ar­eas of ab­so­lute dis­agree­ment”.
