Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive, NHS Employers said:
“We want to congratulate Dr Johann Malawana on his new role and look forward to working with him and the committee as they represent the views and aspirations of their members and the profession. He has the opportunity to find a path with us through this difficult situation and we will do everything we can to cooperate in discussions.
“We understand the great concern of junior doctors and are working hard to answer their questions. We are committed to talks to address doctors concerns.
“We know the importance of having an on-going relationship between employers and trade unions. Imposing a contract is not the preferred solution of any party – the door is still open for the BMA to come back to the negotiating table and we urge them to do so.”
