BMA to announce plans for industrial action by doctors

BMA to announce what kind of measures doctors will take after they voted in favour of industrial action over changes to their pensions.

The British Medical Association balloted more than 104,000 medics across the UK on the government's plans which it claims are unfair.

Half responded, with 79% of GPs, 84% of hospital consultants and 92% of junior doctors voting in favour.

The union's leadership will confirm its plans later, having previously ruled out a full-out strike.

The Chairman of BMA Council, Dr Hamish Meldrum, will address the press conference.
