junior doctor strikes

I know there is a lot of anger among many junior doctors. I understand why: juniors have many legitimate concerns about their current work and training routines and to be told - falsely- that they would suffer a 30% pay cut would anger any sensible person. But they have been misled and in any event this week's strike action is totally disproportionate... As many junior doctors consider joining the picket line again today, my message to them is simple: please be responsible and consider the impact your strike action will have on patients. They remain the most important consideration for us all.
