Doctors reject call for industrial action16th March 2011
Doctors have rejected a call for industrial action at a Special Representatives Meeting held in London to discuss the NHS reforms.
After heated debate, the British Medical Association leaders defeated calls for an end to their policy of ‘critical engagement’ with the government. The vote by a majority of 54% to 44%, with 2% abstaining, came after BMA chair Dr Hamish Meldrum urged his colleagues not to “tie our negotiating hands.” SRM delegates condemned the NHS reforms but ultimately voted against opposing the health bill in its entirety.
