Second twenty-four hour junior doctors’ strike begins
Further talks between the government and the British Medical Association have failed to come to a positive resolution; at eight o’clock this morning, junior doctors are set to go on strike for twenty-four hours, the second instance of such a strike in just over a month.
If you are an eligible junior doctor (and a BMA member) and are rostered to provide emergency care on any of the days of ‘emergency care only’ action, then you should go into work and perform your duties as normal.
If you are an eligible junior doctor (and a BMA member) and are rostered for a shift which does not require you to provide emergency care, then you should not go into work.
If you are not rostered to work on the days of industrial action then you should not go into work.
No eligible junior doctor (who is also a BMA member) should attend work on 10 February between 8am and 5pm).
