PRESS RELEASE: the government’s response to the DDRB report

The Doctors’ Association UK is dismayed to read the written statement to Parliament this morning by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, on the pay award for 2018-19 for doctors in England. Once again, doctors are left angry, disappointed and feeling undervalued. The new Secretary of State spoke less than a week ago about ‘valuing, admiring and fighting for NHS staff’. Unfortunately, today’s announcement could not be further from that.
