FINALLY! Junior doctors’ contract set to be imposed


Ministers are expected to impose a contract on junior doctors later on Thursday.

It comes after leader negotiator Sir David Dalton counseled the authorities to do “whatever it deems necessary” to stop the deadlock.

The contract provided by the government might have found those get extra pay.

The offer also included increasing fines imposed against trusts for over-working increasing the extra pay, and doctors medics get for quite long hours.

The set of propositions was presented to the BMA on Tuesday evening, on the eve of the strike, and rejected on Wednesday afternoon when the walk-out was in full swing.

During the strike emergency cover was provided by physicians, but the stoppage resulted in the cancellation of almost 3,000 routine procedures and treatments. GP care was mainly unaffected.
