I have just received this by email re the parliamentary by-elections coming up in Sedgefield (Tony Blair's seat) and Ealing.
"RemedyUK are looking for doctors with local connections to either of these two constituencies to stand as candidates to highlight the threats to the NHS. If 'your' doctor fills that criterion and would like to find out more, do get in touch."
RemedyUK is the organisation of junior doctors founded in February to help highlight the crisis facing our doctors. They now have over 9,000 members.
Back in March when I tried to get junior doctors to speak out about the problems of the NHS they were told that if they got political in the media their jobs would be on the line. Now they are hoping to fight what may be the most media intense election battle ever seen in the UK.
