It seems that the government is in no mood to cooperate with the British Medical Association as Health Minster Andrew Lansley has clearly told BMA chairman Dr. Hamish Meldrum not to expect any kind of cooperation.
Lansley wrote a letter to Meldrum in which he made it clear that taking a step of industrial action has not benefitted the BMA at all. Moreover, they should not expect any kind of relaxation in pension policies after announcing industrial action plan.
He has further written that the BMA decision will have a taxing effect on patients. He has urged the BMA not to let patients suffer due to their decision of industrial action. Industrial action is planned to take place on June 21, and as per Lansley, it is said to be going to harm patients.
Lansley said that he had a word with Meldrum on phone as well and also he said that decision of industrial action is not right and showed disappointment for the same. However, on the other side, Meldrum said that Lansley has failed to understand the feelings of doctors.
Meldrum said that doctors are feeling betrayed and this is the reason that they have taken a decision to take out an industrial action.
