So, haven’t written much for a long time. Been busy – still busy but felt I should comment on the coming junior doctor’s strike. Also want to plug my book THE PROMISE.
Why would any junior doctor want to take industrial action? It’s simple. All of them have spent five years qualifying as doctors – they had to get straight ‘A’s’ at A-level to get into medical school. In the last two years all their friends are earning because most other degrees require only three years of study. Then they have to do a compulsory year working in hospital for a pittance to get GMC registered.
