Doctors' strike condemned

12th June 2012

The Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has written a letter to the head of the British Medical Association to condemn the decision by health service doctors to strike.

The BMA's decision to strike over pension contributions and later retirement ages is the first in nearly 40 years. Mr Lansley said in his letter that the strike would "at best inconvenience and at worst harm" patients. He wrote: "The adverse impact on patients of postponing and rescheduling these procedures will echo through the NHS long after the strike you are proposing."
