Doctors on Strike in the U.KComments Off on Doctors on Strike in the U.K
LONDON — Doctors in England staged a historic strike Tuesday amid a months-long dispute over a new contract the government wants to impose on them.
The strike will last until Wednesday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day. It is the first time in the history of the National Health Service, Britain’s taxpayer-funded health system, that industrial action on this scale is taking place. Junior doctors in the United Kingdom can be newly qualified or have up to 10 years’ experience.
