Joint Welfare Statement

Since our last welfare statement there have been several developments in the ongoing contract dispute between junior doctors, represented by the BMA, and the Government. It remains a challenging and difficult time for doctors in training. The AAGBI, Royal College of Anaesthestists and the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine maintain that it is crucial that trainees are, and feel, supported at this time. We are proud of the important role our junior doctors play in the safe delivery of anaesthesia and critical care services and as members of the wider hospital team. Safe and supportive working conditions are vital for the delivery of a high quality training programme and for recruitment and retention of doctors to the NHS.
