It appears the government not willing to increase the salaries of junior doctors but at the same time junior doctors are crying out for a pay rise. Briefly looking at both sides, how much would be enough of a pay rise to satisfy the junior doctors? I doubt £1 per hour is enough, but from the government point of view, a £1 increment is a lot. There are 50 000 junior doctors, and most of them work more than 37.5hrs a week, but if we assume they worked 37.5hrs, a £1 increase will see the government pumping out an extra £1 875 000 a week………….but, like I said, I doubt a £1 per hour increase will be enough! What will be the outcome?
