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.

Therefore, on balance the DAUK committee feel that we cannot endorse this contract.
