Doctors in Peterborough are holding an event in the city centre as junior doctors vote in favour of strike action.

The ‘Meet The Doctors’ event is this Saturday (November 21) in Peterborough city centre from 10am to 2pm and has been organised by doctors who are aggrieved by the government’s changes to junior doctors’ contracts.

The news follows the announcement today (Thursday, November 19) that 98 per cent of junior doctors had agreed to strike on three days in December.

These are from 8am on December 1 to 8am on December 2 (junior doctors to staff emergency care), 8am to 5pm on December 8 (full strike) and 8am to 5pm on December 16 (full strike).
