Video: Voices from the Junior Doctors Strike

Today, for the first time in 40 years, junior doctors have been forced to take strike action over new contracts the Government want to impose which will leave doctors working longer hours for less money.

We went down to some of the picket lines this morning to talk to the doctors about why they're on strike. Please share this video on social media, lets get their voices out there and do all you can to support the strike action.

    Support and with junior doctors all the way, and keeping nursing student bursaries. These are just more measures to try to dismantle the NHS by the tory government under the guise that ’it’s not working’. Impossible goals being set by the conservative government while making cuts creating difficult conditions. Labour under Blair (not real Labour values) was not much better. Everything is political and those that think otherwise are a little deluded. It is crucial that we all continue to keep up the support for the NHS. Save it, if it goes it’s not going to come back!

    Many who didn’t vote, along with many who voted Tory, weren’t stupid, but nor were they in a position to appreciate the extent to which we’d be governed in the interests of the wealthy. Hunt’s intransigence, to the detriment of doctors and anyone who ever needs to rely on the NHS, is one illustration of the true colours (dark navy?) of Cameron and his crew. We should all support the doctors.
