John Reid 2004 new labour of course.... giving Gps and medics all they wanted or didn't originally ask for including cancelling home visits etc and closing surgeries half days and no Saturdays Sundays. The old doctors never expected or desired family life to intrude on their chosen vocation and their threat to walk away from emergency care provision is frankly nothing short of disgustinglyi unbelievable. You couldn't make it up could you! This cavalier attitude should be made illegal and at least government should introduce immediate measures to make illegal any non attendance at emergency situations as with the other emergency providers

There are more doctors working during the brief strikes who are union members, they are called Consultants and they are covering their junior colleagues.
Those Junior Doctors often have served more time than some Consultants.
Nye Bevan got his way because he was of a constructive mindset and ambition unlike Jeremy Hunt who is the opposite and is recognised as such by most fair-minded people. who generally support the Junior Doctors' actions.

So when they say that they are effectively taking a 20-25% pay cut, I believe them, when they say that they will be working longer hours and will be treating people tired, I believe them and when they say that they will no longer be able to choose their holidays to fit in with family life, I believe them.
This is about the demise of the NHS, who will want to be a doctor in the future? The old doctors put their chosen profession before family life no???
and seeing as all the consultants were once Junior doctors, it's understandable that they generally support the docs.
