Junior doctors’ strike: Views from behind the picket line

Englands junior doctors began a 48-hour walkout on 9 March, following the imposition of a new contract by the Secretary for Health, Jeremy Hunt. The government wants to introduce changes in the way doctors are being paid. The main sticking point is over weekend pay and whether Saturdays should be classed as normal working days. Junior doctors are currently paid a premium at weekend. Mar 9, 2016
