JUNIOR doctors are to stage a fresh round of strikes after talks with the Government failed to resolve a bitter row over pay.

The British Medical Association (BMA) said a 96-hour walkout will take place in England for shifts starting between 6.59am on Tuesday April 11 and 6.59am on Saturday April 15.

Junior doctors in the Hospital Consultants and Specialists Association (HCSA) will strike on the same days.

Picket lines formed at Whiston Hospital in March as junior doctors held a three-day strike as part of the dispute over pay.

A Department of Health and Social Care spokesman said the BMA placed an “unreasonable” pre-condition on talks of a 35 per cent pay rise but the union denied this was the case.
