NHS Employers and BMA reach agreement on Junior Doctor's contract

I am very relieved that an agreement has been reached which, subject to approval by a vote of BMA members, will settle the long-running dispute about Junior Doctor's terms and conditions.

The dispute has been good for nobody - not good for doctors, not good for the government and, far and away the most important, not good for patients.

This deal appears to be an honourable compromise which has been described as a "score draw."

Let's hope that the deal proves acceptable to Junior Doctors in the ballot,  which will be held in June, and we can all go back to building a better NHS.
