Junior Doctors Strike Action 26 and 27 March 2016
About 300 supporters turned up at Treliske to join the Junior Doctor s striking over a new contract that the Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, wants to impose on them. They believe that the new contract is both unsafe and unfair. Supporters include people from Trade Unions, Labour, Anti Cuts Alliance, families and friends of the hospital.
The public showed their support noisily by honking as they drove by the picket line and also and the demonstrators marched to Lemon Quay.
Jeremy Corbyn has joined striking junior doctors protesting over Jeremy Hunt's seven-day NHS - but only after the picket was officially over. The Labour leader was with his right-hand man, Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, as a demonstration continued outside the Department of Health on Whitehall after the strike ended at 5pm.
