Senior doctors back strike action in England

Evesham Editorial 27th Jun, 2023   0

NHS consultants in England have voted in favour of strike action in their fight to get more pay.

Some 86 per cent of British Medical Association members backed walkouts over what the union described as repeated pay cuts.

The union had already announced a 48-hour walkout on 20 and 21 July would take place if doctors backed action.

It follows a five-day strike by junior doctors – the combination of which is likely to lead to huge disruption to services and cancelled treatments.

The walkout by junior doctors across all services ends on 18 July.
