Speaking in an interview for the ITV News at Ten, 2020health’s Chief Executive, Julia Manning spoke on the ongoing dispute between Junior Doctors and the Department of Health. In the piece, she questioned the worth of putting the onus for a seven day NHS on Junior Doctors, and said that more emphasis should be placed on support staff. Mrs Manning then suggested that public opinion on the worth of the changes be investigated, and suitable funding settlement for the NHS put together on that basis.

This news comes after it was announced that a new wave of three 48 hour strikes would take place over the coming months.
