It's been an awful year of bad weather (so far) and bad government press (so far) and majority of our Junior Doctors across the UK are on strike.
Well, it's not surprising. But which side is not listening? Which side benefits more? The government or the doctors? It's the first time in my lifetime I have seen so many strikes from one gigantic organisation in one year. Even the tube and bus drivers don't strike this often!!

What would happen if we do have a seven day service? It's a bit unfair that the public don't really have a say in this (that's why I'm blogging about it). What can we do to help make the government listen to concerns across the board? Pay more taxes? :( Will increasing a junior doctor's pay really mean they'll have more money or would they be worse off? Or will the NHS just be paying for more foreign doctors? If this goes ahead, will the services go downhill and will the docs just quit to find another meaningless job? And what would it mean if we exit the EU?!!!
Argh, so many questions, no answers to the solutions... my brain is on meltdown mode. Frigging Conservatives!!! Get yourself sorted and make a solution, improve services, cut down on other things and stop using our taxes for your scandals. >_<"" And doctors, you need to find more facts about working standards, equality and fight till the end!!!
Next strike: 26th and 27th April (the fifth one)
