#Hashtag: Junior doctors may strike after government proposes contract changes


Junior doctors in Great Britain will go through with a ballot for industrial action, after Jeremy Hunt, British health secretary proposed changes to their current contract, which, according to the BBC, has remained the same since the 1990s.

The changes to the contract will reportedly include an 11% pay raise at the price of curbed unsociable hours and a progression-based training process system, rather than one that is time-based.

Today, junior doctors received a letter from Hunt, an attempt to persuade them to vote against taking industrial action.

Many took to Twitter to comment on the junior doctors’ contract issue.
