A&E is busy at the best of times and that’s when it’s fully staffed. But for the first time in the history of the NHS, the majority of junior doctors in England will refuse to provide even emergency care. At the Royal Blackburn Hospital’s casualty unit, it means all those dressed in green are likely to be on the picket line. More than 100 operations have been cancelled to free up senior consultants to take over.

“The surgeons will be based on the ward and they also will be based in the emergency department. And our ___?___ will be providing cover on the critical care unit. As a result of that, we feel that we should be keeping patients safe during the days of industrial action.”

NHS England says that nationwide more than 100,000 outpatient appointments and 13,000 operations have been postponed, many more than any of the previous four strikes, a measure of just how concerned hospitals are.

“The NHS has never had to deal with an all-out strike before. In the run up to the action, many hospitals have been cancelling operations to free up beds, and that should get them spare capacity once junior doctors leave their posts.”

“Save our NHS, save our NHS.”

Public support for an all-out strike has eroded slightly according to a poll by Sky Data, down from 50% in January to 44% now.

“Save our NHS, save our NHS.”

But Kiah still backs the doctors even though her operation related to a complex genetic condition has been rearranged.

“It’s not gonna kill me, it’s not emergency surgery. Yes, I’ll be in a bit more pain for a few extra weeks, but if the NHS, you know, doesn’t survive because a contract that’s unfair and unsafe and unworkable gets put through, then I won’t have NHS operate on me in the future.”

At the Department of Health, some doctors tried once more to get their message through to Jeremy Hunt.

“If you’re gonna let Jeremy Hunt know that Rachel and I will be here for 24 hours, we will be sleeping on the streets if that’s what it takes to get him lift position and talk.”

The strike is over a new contract that Department of Health wants more doctors to work weekends. It says to make care safer, but junior doctors fear they will be under pressure to work excessive hours. And they insist they are not being properly paid.

“This Health Secretary has had weeks, if not months and years to try to get around table and talk to us, and has avoided point-blank trying to engage and finding solutions. Instead, he pushes a generation doctors into strike action they do not want to take.”

But in the Commons, the Health Secretary said the government had a manifesto commitment to provide a 7-day NHS.

“I urge them as well tomorrow, whatever their differences with me, whatever their differences with the government, to think about patients. It will be absolute tragedy for the NHS if something goes wrong in the next couple of days and they have a duty to make sure that it doesn’t.”

The strike runs between 8 o’clock in the morning and 5 in the evening on Tuesday and Wednesday. Extra GP appointments have been made available and patients have been urged not to go to A&E unless absolutely necessary.
