Sir Bruce Keogh -fearmongering-junior doctors

Latest on Sir Bruce Keogh and Junior DoctorsSir Bruce Keogh accused of politicising the attack in Paris and fearmongering to demonise junior doctors’ strike plans.

More than 3,000 junior doctors have accused one of the country’s most senior medical officers of deliberately using the threat of a Paris style terrorist attack to stoke public fears over their planned strike action.

In a letter, passed to The Independent, the doctors accuse Professor Sir Bruce Keogh, medical director of NHS England, of a “disrespectful and politicised” intervention in the increasingly acrimonious dispute over changes to their pay and working conditions.

They also question whether Sir Bruce was in collusion with the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt when he wrote a paper earlier this year suggesting that up to 11,000 deaths could be attributed annually to weekend working practices in the National Health Service.
