Mike Kane MP questions Jeremy Hunt on Junior Doctors Contracts

Mike Kane (Wythenshawe and Sale East) (Lab): The Royal College of General Practitioners has reacted to the decision to impose the contract by saying that it is shocked and dismayed. The Royal College of Psychiatrists has said that the decision will exacerbate the recruitment and retention issues that the NHS currently faces. Why does the Health Secretary ignore the concerns of those two royal colleges?

Mr Hunt: When those colleges have had a chance to look carefully at our proposal, they will find much that they can commend. For both psychiatrists and GPs, we are putting in a premium to attract more people into those specialities, which will be immensely important both for them and for the NHS.
