Junior doctors to strike over five days, BMA says

Junior doctors in England will strike on five days from 24 to 28 February, in an ongoing dispute with the government about pay.

The British Medical Association (BMA), which represents junior doctors, wants a 35% pay increase – a proposal previously rejected by ministers.

Many routine hospital services are likely to be disrupted or cancelled.

The government said it wanted to find a “reasonable solution” and is prepared to “go further” on a pay offer.

Junior doctors received a pay rise averaging nearly 9% this financial year – and during talks at the end of 2023, the option of an extra 3% on top of that was discussed.

But those talks ended in early December without a deal being reached.
