Junior doctors are filling streets across England in the first ever all-out strike since the National Health Service began in 1948, as they walk out on both emergency and routine care. The 18-hour strike began on 26 April and will end at 10pm on 27 April. It is a reflection of the impasse between the government and the junior doctors, many of whom already have up to 10 years' experience. It follows Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt's refusal to withdraw from his decision to impose a new contract on junior doctors from August this year and potentially resolve the dispute by re-entering talks.
So far, the protests have been creative, with many staging a #timetotalkjeremy camp outside the Department of Health, complete with a chair with the health secretary's name printed on it. Others have made handmade banners filled with Jeremy-Hunt-puns, making their point clear that they will not back down.
