Video: Government rejected BMA contract proposals, says Dr Johann Malawana

Junior doctors' leader Dr Johann Malawana has said GP solidarity is important for juniors in their contract dispute with the government.

Speaking to GPonline from the picket line at the Royal London Hospital in London's East End, Dr Malawana said junior doctors were 'incredibly grateful' for the support of GPs and other healthcare professionals.

The union leader accused the government of rejecting a 'workable solution' to the dispute proposed by the BMA, pushing doctors into 'unnecessary' action.

The BMA has confirmed that thousands of junior doctors joined 160 pickets across England on the second day of strikes in the junior doctor contract dispute.
