Doctors threaten to withdraw labour

8th March 2012

A protest at changes to NHS pensions could see doctors cancelling non-emergency work.

They are actively discussing the move and while the British Medical Association has ruled out an all-out strike, it is set to ballot members on other forms of industrial action. The precise forms of action have not yet been decided but could include taking all contractual breaks or refusing to engage in commissioning activity and there are growing calls from doctors to send the strongest possible message to the government.
