Strikes: Junior Doctors announce strike action in April

Junior doctors in England have announced a second round of strike action in April.

Members of the British Medical Association will walk out from 11th until 14th April, in a continuation of disputes over pay and working conditions. The BMA are insisting only a 30 per cent increase will make up for previous below-inflation rises.

There was a previous 72-hour strike that took place at the beginning of last week.

BMA leaders met Health Secretary Steve Barclay on Wednesday. He says that a pay rise of 30 per cent is “unaffordable”.
