The Chief Executives of the region's biggest hospital trusts say they're against government plans to impose a new contract on junior doctors. But the heads of the Royal United in Bath and University Hospitals Bristol agree that the new contract offered is 'reasonable.' Their names appeared on a controversial letter used by the health secretary to justify his decision to impose new terms on the doctors.

Both trusts have issued the following statements:

I have not supported contract imposition. I have supported the view that the NHS needs certainty on the Junior Doctor’s contract and that the latest contract offer was fair and reasonable. It is really important that we have certainty over the working arrangements for new Junior Doctors starting with us on 1 August.

The Chief Executive was asked to confirm his support for the negotiating team, led by Sir David Dalton and Ms Clare Panniker, going back to the British Medical Association (BMA) with a “fair and reasonable” best and final offer, in the expectation that such a move would allow a resolution of the current position.

It is highly regretful that this final step was unable to bring the current dispute to resolution, which is in the best interests of all parties and most importantly in the best interest of our patients who rely upon the NHS to provide services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

– University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust spokesperson
