Junior doctors picketed outside North Devon District Hospital this morning in the latest walkout over contracts.

Junior doctors took to the picket line outside North Devon District Hospital once more this morning (Wednesday) in the latest strike over contracts.

The 48 hour strike started this morning at 8am, with those on strike only providing emergency care until Friday.

The British Medical Association (BMA) said that it has been unable to reach an agreement with the government on major points of the proposed contract.

More action is planned on April 27, when there will be a full withdrawal of service between 8am and 5pm for two days.
