Junior Doctors Contract changes accepted in crucial referendum

The Doctors’ Association UK would first and foremost like to thank the British Medical Association and the negotiating team for their hard work this year.

However, DAUK notes with concern the outcome the BMA’s referendum of its junior members on the revised 2016 terms & conditions of employment for junior doctors in England.

DAUK will not endorse BMA junior doctor contract deal

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.
