NHS hit by junior doctor shortage4th March 2008
The British Medical Association (BMA) has informed the government about a shortage of junior doctors.
Some hospitals are operating with only half the junior physicians they need, which the organisation blames on the new recruiting process. "We are going to end up going back to junior doctors working 80 to 100-hour weeks, which will impact not only on their training and health, but also patient care," said Ram Moorthy, chairman of the BMA Junior Doctors' Committee.
