Picketting with the Junior Doctors......again.
So, we found ourselves back on the Junior Doctors picket line at St. Peter's Hospital, Chertsey.
Once again there was a good turnout and lots of support.
The issues are getting clearer - there are now two legal challenges to The Health Secretary's decision - one of which deals with the disproportionate effect of the changes on women and single parents;
It's a real family atmosphere on the picket;
With a birthday celebration and a picketing dog;
We were hooting at passers by until my horn gave out;
It all gets very serious at the end of the month with the doctors withdrawing from Accident and Emergency work for two days. I imagine everybody is hoping that Hunt sees sense or the courts force him to do something before then.
Either way, we're supporting the strike!
