Following Meet the Doctors events in the afternoon a demo will be held in Newcastle on the 12th January at 6pm at Monument - details:
We are challenging doctors in every town and city in England to take to the streets throughout November so that members of the public can #MeetTheDrs.
What is 'Meet the Doctors?'
It's a campaign to raise public awareness and gain their support regarding the junior doctor contract. Inspired by similar efforts undertaken by colleagues across the UK.
We've had an amazing response to Meet the Doctor events in the autumn - with the public queuing in the rain to sign our petitions and even bringing us cups of tea!
We're encouraging all doctors to donate an hour or two of your time to engage with the public. Grab a friend and colleague, don your scrubs and stethescope, print off the petition and leaflets (link will be posted soon) and get going!
