East London GP Dr Kambiz Boomla told GPonline that he had joined junior doctors taking strike action over proposed contract changes because it was vital that years of work to make working hours safer were not undone.

Dr Boomla warned that a 'mood of militancy' was growing across the NHS, and said GPs too could be forced into forms of action. Later this month GP leaders will meet an emergency LMCs conference that is likely to debate calls for industrial action and other forms of protest.
The Chrisp Street GP said non-compliance with CQC requirements or other forms of box-ticking imposed on general practice were among actions GPs may consider to demonstrate concerns about changes to the health service.
Thousands of GP trainees are expected to be among junior doctors taking industrial action. GP leaders have said general practice services will function as normal during the strike.
