You are stealing my lines as well. All the seniors and GP s I know are circa this amount given by Blair government 2004. And also their work hours were reduced Catch up on your history. I worked for the labour party years ago as well as other political organisations so not entirely talking out of my hat etc

Thank you, vickt, for bringing common sense back to the subject and the objective view that most of us share that the Junior Doctors are defending the NHS and have been brought to this position by, as previously described, Jeremy Hunt - "A true Christian gentleman who is kind". The same J.H. who co-authored a policy document on the need to get rid of the NHS and replace it with private medical insurance.
I believe there is sincere intent on both sides.
The Junior Doctors wish to work safely and dedicate their lives to the NHS and thus preserve it and maintain it.
Meanwhile, Jeremy Hunt is determined to take the NHS apart , piece by piece, until there is a third world, third rate NHS which will force all of us to buy costly medical insurance.
Junior Doctors.........YES.
Perhaps I take this view because this right wing Tory government doesn't care for we who need the NHS most but don't vote for them. Demonstrated by Ian Duncan Smith in a recent interview on the Andrew Marr show, he confirmed what we have suspected for a long time that this government has an anti-working class attitude and will take from them to give to their own class.

Totally agree about 7 day working.

Not that embarrassing, however while waiting for my slot (ahem) there were a number of intrusive investigations that was a tad embarrassing, all to make sure it hadn't spread, well that was his excuse anyway!

Very glad to hear that! After a certain age you just have to accept that you have no dignity in relation to medical treatment.

Thebunhouse, totally agree.

The old medics loved their jobs. And do no harm was inbedded on their hearts and minds. They were 7 days a week workaholics as Adam Boulion opined in Sunday Times etc...His dad was always away but now at age 90 petrified to go near the tender embraces of the new so called doctors! God help us

They are 7 day week workaholics now. Often doing up to 2 hours extra on top of their shift, for no extra pay, but it's all about the money eh?

If we are going to have a fully operational 7 day week, with the same amount of doctors (yes I will labour that point), isn't something going to give during the week now?

Lol, right, so is it the patients or the doctors or the NHS itself that you have a problem with?

And may I ask, when you joined all those health committees, what was your vision and hope for the future of health care?

I am sure, Paramount, when you respond to boroughonian's question you will be able to tell us what ideas and plans you have formulated and put forward to save the NHS whilst serving on the various health committees . Have the committees adopted your ideas?
What is your plan for the future of the NHS?
Do tell. I really am interested because I feel I must have missed something in this debate.
It would seem, from your point of view, that Junior Doctors and the BMA are determined to destroy the NHS for their own selfish reasons.
Jeremy Hunt is the saviour of the NHS because he is "A true Christian gentleman who is kindly" and we who do not know him personally should not criticise him and his obnoxious policies.
The vicar from St. Martin in the fields has a more rational and worthy view than the public in general.
The doctors who speak to you agree with you.
Have I misrepresented your views?
J.H. has not deliberately skewed the statistics to prove a case that is unfounded.
