Junior Doctors Strike.


Today, the Junior Doctors are embarking on a four-day strike. It is hoped that the Government will take notice and intervene before the situation becomes a disaster. While the NHS and the Government have warned that this strike will put more lives at risk, it is important to note that the healthcare system is already suffering from a shortage of doctors, nurses, and other staff due to Brexit and inadequate wages.

Some may argue that the Junior Doctors are being greedy, but it is crucial to recognise the long and gruelling hours they work to keep us all safe and healthy. These Junior Doctors are the future of the medical profession, and if they are not treated fairly now, they may leave the profession or take their expertise abroad when we need them most.

In the future, it is possible that Junior Doctors will earn high wages. However, it is important to remember that they must first pay for their extensive training, which often results in significant loans that must be repaid over time.

While the potential for high earnings may be enticing, it is crucial to consider the financial burden that comes with pursuing a career in medicine. Junior Doctors must invest a significant amount of time and money into their education and training before they can even begin to reap the benefits of their hard work.

It is true that thousands of appointments have been cancelled or postponed due to the strike, but the reality is that this has been happening even before the strike due to a lack of staff and time. The question we must ask ourselves is whether we can afford to lose more doctors and healthcare professionals. The answer is a resounding no. It is time for the Government to take action and address the concerns of the Junior Doctors to ensure the future of our healthcare system.
