Junior Doctors Strike


I am in favour of this strike. For too many years successive governments have relied on the medical staff not to strike to enforce pay cuts and longer hours. 

People will lay the blame for the strike on the #Tories but the health care has been hit in both North Wales and Staffordshire and they are Labour run services.

Under this government, #Bristol has an up to date hospital that is easy to get to, rather than the old hospital at Frenchay that was a terrible place to get to. It used to take me four hours, and two bus trips, for a ten-minute appointment - even though the hospital is only a few mile away - there is no direct bus link. 

With Southmead hospital http://www.nhs.uk/Services/Hospitals/Overview/DefaultView.aspx?id=2082 being @Bristol & SouthWest's main hospital we needed a heliport station for emergency airlifts, and Southmead was the obvious choice as it has open spaces for the helicopter to land.
