NHS Employers Responds to Jeremy Hunt's Speech During Opposition Day Debate

Following Jeremy Hunt's opening statement on junior doctor contracts made during the Opposition Day Debate in the House of Commons, Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive, NHS Employers, said:


NHS Employers

"Employers welcome the commitment given by Jeremy Hunt to doctors that no junior doctor will see their pay cut compared to their current contract. It reinforces the value attached to this important part of the NHS team.

"Together with the assurances offered by the Secretary of State to the BMA on 8th October, it again makes it clear that there is real action being taken to address doctors' concerns. I again ask the BMA to re-enter talks with us, and would urge them to suspend their ballot for industrial action."
