As most of you may be aware, there has been a lot of concerns regarding the proposed change to junior doctor's contract by the government and the Review Body on Doctor's and Dentist's Remuneration (DDRB). Social media and more recently national press have been highlighting the concerns on a regular basis. There have been various statements from the Royal Colleges and the British Medical Association and we would like to keep our members up to date on current events that will no doubt have a significant effect on the profession (and ourselves). Please take some time to have a look at some of the links below to keep yourself well informed.

The YDEF have added the voice of D&E trainees to the BMA response. We welcome and celebrate Scotland and Wales' decision not to impose a new contract and call for our government to review their proposals based on transparent, evidence-based negotiation
