A deal has been agreed in the long-running dispute over a new junior doctors contract.

Negotiations broke down in February over the issue of extended working hours and Saturday pay.

Now an agreement has been reached between the junior doctor’s union, the British Medical Association and the government, after 10 days of discussion.

The offer from health secretary Jeremy Hunt will now be voted on by the junior doctors.

The long-running dispute saw junior doctors withdraw emergency care, for the first time ever, from Queen’s Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford and King George Hospital, Barley Lane, Goodmayes in April.

The two day strike meant consultants were called in to provide emergency care and at the time, junior doctor Naomi Oliver, 27, said they had played their “last card.”
