DAUK on Sky News on testing for frontline staff

This morning DAUK Chair Dr Rinesh Parmar spoke to Sky News about lack of testing for frontline staff.

“You can imagine if one member of a household develops symptoms the whole household will need to self-isolate, including those working for the NHS. This will cripple the NHS. We need to roll out testing urgently.”

Rinesh Parmar, chairman of the Doctors’ Association, said: “We have had doctors tell us they feel like lambs to the slaughter, that they feel like cannon fodder. GPs tell us that they feel absolutely abandoned. We are all pleading with Boris Johnson that [the government] really look into arranging the vital personal protection equipment that all of us need on the NHS frontline.”
