Employers welcome a step back from further industrial action

19th July 2012
Responding to the British Medical Association Council's announcement today deferring a decision on further industrial action, Dean Royles, director of the NHS Employers organisation, said:
"The NHS will breathe a sigh of relief that there will be no more industrial action for the moment.
"We hope we can use this time constructively. The very threat of industrial action risks patient care, hits confidence in the doctors and strains the workplace relationships that are so important to the quality and safety of our services.
"We understand that there is a great deal of concern around the pensions issue but it is right that we move on and get patients out of the argument.
"The suspension of possible industrial action will help us all to redouble our work, in partnership, on this challenging NHS pension agenda."
