Call for health secretary to resign

29th June 2012

Doctors have called on health secretary Andrew Lansley to quit.

The British Medical Association called for his resignation at its Annual Representative Meeting in Bournemouth with reports suggesting the no-confidence vote was passed by 158 votes to 124. However, meeting chair, Dr Hamish Meldrum, called for attendees to reject the motion, saying it would make it more difficult to negotiate with the government in the future. The conference also backed motions calling for further industrial action on pensions, saying further action should include withdrawal from clinical commissioning.
