Motion S4M-15649: Junior Doctor Contracts

12 Feb 2016

That the Parliament deplores the handling of junior doctors’ contracts in England by the Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt; further deplores what it considers the lack of proper engagement shown by the UK Government in what it sees as the latest in a long line of politically motivated attacks on the NHS south of the border; congratulates the junior doctors and the British Medical Association (BMA) on what it sees as their positive and organised opposition to what it considers these unfair changes; welcomes confirmation from the Scottish Government that what it considers these fundamentally unfair contracts will not be imposed on junior doctors in Scotland, and welcomes those seeking fairer contracts to look for jobs in the NHS in Scotland.
