Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive, NHS Employers in response to the BMA Junior Doctors Committee announcing proposed schedule should industrial action go ahead, said:
"We know this will have a huge impact on patient care and we urge the BMA to avoid putting patients and the NHS in this position by returning to talks with us. Proposed industrial action, as outlined by the BMA would be hugely regrettable. Employers across the NHS will be extremely disappointed and anxious about the difficult situation they will find themselves in to make sure work schedules are met and patient care is not compromised."
