Junior doctors industrial action to be suspended

The British Medical Association has announced on the basis of early progress made in the current set of talks with the Government, the junior doctors committee has made the decision to suspend the 48-hour industrial action planned for 26–28 January.

They said: “This decision is in line with our stated aim to ensure a safe, fair contract through negotiated agreement, if at all possible. The action which junior doctors across England took last week sent a clear message to the Government and the negotiating team is now focusing on reaching a resolution to meet your concerns.”
