Changes to junior doctors’ contracts

Yesterday I voted to support a motion brought before the UH MedGroup Committee to oppose the imposition of the DDRB recommendations on junior doctors’ contracts.

Moving forwards, the UH MedGroup are meeting this week to discuss possible further action. I am also looking into holding a RUMS Forum meeting to discuss the changes to the contracts in an open setting in order to broaden awareness and to fully appreciate the views of the student body.

Please see attached the open letter written on behalf of the UH MedGroup Committee.
