GPs make cases for and against industrial action

Doctors will stop providing non-urgent care for a day next month in the first industrial action by the profession for nearly 40 years.

The 24-hour day of action will take place on 21 June, after a majority of doctors voted in favour of action in a BMA ballot over pension changes.

Dr Tom Frewin and Dr Tariq Hussain have opposing views on whether doctors should be taking such action. They spoke to the BBC to debate the issue.
