A group of junior doctors has launched a fundraising campaign in an effort to take Jeremy Hunt to court and stop the imposition of their new contract.
Calling themselves JustHealth, the junior doctors involved are hoping to raise £100,000 to pay for solicitors fees.
Since being launched on Sunday, the campaign has already raised £56,936 – easily beating the original goal of £25.000.
On their fundraising website, the group wrote: “We are asking for funding to take an independent legal action started by doctors but ultimately involving all interested parties.
“We are challenging the imposition of an unplanned and dangerous contract which will affect patient wellbeing and safety.
