In response to the BMA’s decision to go ahead with industrial action, Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive, NHS Employers said:
“It is extremely disappointing there will be industrial action. We have listened and worked hard to address the BMA’s concerns. We now need to see from the BMA the will to also compromise, with a focus on resolution – rather than strike action.
“Patients should not suffer over a dispute about pay. We will continue to want to talk with the BMA to agree a contract that is fair and safe for doctors and patients.”
