Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive of the NHS Employers, said

"As the BMA know, our approach to contract discussions has always been based on providing safe working hours for doctors in training, as well as stability of pay and agreed and fair work schedules. Whilst the Doctors and Dentists Review Body endorsed the broad direction of travel, there was still much to do, and we accepted their encouragement to discuss these issues - including the BMA concerns - further.

“Employers across the NHS are extremely disappointed to hear that the BMA Junior Doctor Committee have decided to refuse to enter contract negotiations with NHS Employers. While consultants continue to engage in productive negotiation with us it is a real shame that we do not see the same approach from junior doctors."
