The Junior Doctors’ Contract Strikes Are Everyone’s Battle

Junior Doctors-Blog2The opportunist Tory promise to make the NHS provide weekend cover at the same level as the rest of the week, without extra funding, is an attack on all health workers and the public. For health workers it means more hours worked for the same pay. The extra hours of work will undermine the health of NHS workers and is a threat to patients’ safety and care.

The BMA has seen clearly that it is also a long-term threat to the NHS. A destabilised NHS with more problems provides a good excuse for the Tories to privatise it and bring in private health firms, particularly from the US.

It is time the other health unions joined the fight rather than waiting to be picked off one group at a time? The public has shown understanding and support for junior doctors, with 66% backing them. It is indeed everyone’s fight.

The main lessons to be learned from the socialist countries were that they not only acted upon the science but had built and used a strong public sector. They were also able to switch manufacturing to the making of PPE to meet their own needs.
