Enhancing junior doctors' working lives
The 2016 Junior Doctors’ Contract dispute was a difficult process for trainees and the wider healthcare workforce. The dispute highlighted a number of non-contractual issues regarding the working environment, training and doctors feeling valued by organisations in which they deliver care 24 hours a day. HEE listened to these concerns and in response, established a working group in partnership with the BMA Junior Doctors’ Committee, the GMC, NHS Employers, Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and trainee representatives themselves, to address 10 targeted issues for action.
A comprehensive update report was published on 14 March 2017 highlighting the progress made to date to enhance juniors doctors’ working lives. If you would like more information on this programme of work, you can contact HEE's south London team or your south London Trainee Executive Committee.
