More than 150 pickets and 'meet the doctor' events have taken place across England as part of the industrial action, according to the BMA.
BMA junior doctors committee chairman Dr Johann Malawana welcomed the 'clear message' the strong turnout sent to the government. 'Junior doctors in their thousands have made it quite clear what they think of the government’s plans to impose contracts in which junior doctors have no confidence,' he said.
GP trainees, senior GPs and others have spoken to GPonline at pickets in east London. Trainee Dr Sarah McConnell (see video below) said the contract on offer was dangerous for patients and doctors alike, and had left junior doctors with no option but strikes.
