During these 48 hours, only emergency health services will be provided, in the style of those enabled on the day of Christmas.
The British specialists already carried out strikes on July 20 and 21, and on August 24 and 25, while the resident doctors supported, for their part, another four-day strike that began on the 11th. Since March, Resident doctors have held 19 days of strike.
Both residents and specialists who are members of the BMA plan to stop again on October 2, 3 and 4, coinciding with those dates with the celebration in Manchester of the annual congress of the ruling Conservative Party of Rishi Sunak.
