Some 98% of the UK s junior doctors voted in favour of a full strike and 99% in favour of action just short of a full strike.
Many junior doctors in the UK currently work longer hours (90 hours) than concentration camp inmates in Nazi camps, and that, for poor pay, too.
When I was in Berlin, I heard of a doctor who dropped dead from exhaustion while working night shift at the Charite hospital. A perfectly fit man in his mid thirties with a wife and children.
Conditions for junior doctors need to drastically improved or there is a real danger they will get sick, ill, drop dead, resign or emigrate.
At huge cost, the NHS will probably, then, employ doctors from remote countries with lower standards of training, who can be relied on to happily implement “innovation” as described by the Saatchi Bill…
