Breaking: Junior doctors’ strike action announced for five days in February

The tenth round of junior doctor strike action in England will take place from 7am on Saturday 24 February to 11.59 pm on Wednesday 28 February.

This will be a full walkout.

The BMA said in an announcement:

‘Progress was being made in talks but the Government failed to meet the deadline of 8 February to present a credible offer.

‘In order to allow more time for negotiations to continue, we extended an offer to the Health Secretary to cancel this round of strikes before it was announced publicly if she agreed to extend the mandate for strike action for four weeks.

‘Unfortunately she declined to do so leaving us no choice but to announce this final strike of our mandate.

‘Junior doctors should not attend any shifts starting after 6.59am on Saturday 24 February, and continue to strike all shifts that start and end on Wednesday 28 February.

‘However, shifts that start on Wednesday 28 February and end on Thursday 29 February should be completed in full, including starting the shift on Wednesday 28 February.’
