Season’s Greetings

Many of us will be looking forward to spending time with our friends and families over the festive period. This is a time where we can catch up with people we may not have seen for a while, reminiscing about happy times gone by. Whilst we do this over the next few days, we must spare a thought for the thousands of dedicated NHS staff who will be at work. They’ll be caring for our loved ones, the vulnerable and sick by providing essential care for patients across the country.

‘I never expected that when I penned that first letter to Charlie Massey the Chief Exec of the GMC fulled no doubt by sleep deprivation and a swell of collective injustice that it would be signed by 6000 doctors in 48 hours. And several MPs. And that soon after I would be founding the new social movement that would become The Doctors’ Association UK’

PRESS RELEASE: DAUK will not endorse BMA junior doctor contract deal

DAUK have now reviewed the Framework Agreement detailing the agreed changes to the 2016 Junior Doctor Contract following the 2019 negotiations between the BMA and the government. Whilst there are several positive changes junior doctors would welcome, we do not believe the overall proposed revision to the rejected 2016 terms and conditions are worthy of our hard working junior doctor members. Therefore, on balance the DAUK committee feel that we cannot endorse this contract.
