Doctors back more strikes

Have your say

DOCTORS have voted to call more strike action in their ongoing row over the Government’s pension reforms.

The measures were backed at the British Medical Association’s annual conference in Bournemouth yesterday.

And delegates at the conference also called for Health Secretary Andrew Lansley to resign after passing a vote of no confidence.

The row is over the Government’s plan to reform the NHS pension, which will mean higher earners like doctors having to contribute more and work for longer.
