Our very own Jack Saunders has written a comment piece for The Guardian’s H Word blog.

Offering some historical perspective on the current dispute over the new junior doctors contract, he casts an eye back over industrial action in 1947 and 1975. While these show that “doctors have long used collective protest to shape the NHS and their role within it, and their different motivations reflect changing relationships and attitudes towards the health service”, there is something different this time. He suggests the differences reveal “a profound transformation in cultural attitudes both towards and amongst doctors”.
