Junior doctors have been notoriously required to work long hours, past reports put it over 80 hours per week
One of the proposals on the table limits this to 72 hours and no more then 4 consecutive nights per week.
Sounds good to me, I'd rather be treated by a doctor who is awake.
At the moment, junior doctors are paid normal time 7-7 weekdays and overtime above. Core time 40 hours.
Proposed that payments for overtime be outside 7-10pm weekdays and 7-7 weekends.
Increase in basic pay to make up for lost overtime earnings.
Again, without checking the maths too much, it doesn't sound as though they will be overly penalised and should allow an increase in weekend cover without breaking the NHS.
Then I keep hearing about some will be discriminated against as only part time or women or whatever ??
Got to say that the basic proposals do not seem too silly to me but obviously details need sorting to keep both sides happy.
If the details are going to penalize junior doctors then they need rethinking but if it is junior doctors being bl00dy minded against a change, whistle.
So which do you prefer?
I'm a diesel person myself.. good economy, matched with good performance.
You can't really go mad on the roads anyway, so the 180bhp is plenty at the moment.
Sorry there isn't a poll for electric powered cars.. I couldn't be bothered making a new thread in the jokes...
