As the strike by junior doctors gets underway, many have turned up outside the region's biggest hospitals to mark their protest.
They say their striking against the imposed changes in pay for unsocial hours, claiming it devalues the work doctors do on evenings and weekends.
The strike by junior doctors ended at 8am today (13 January) but caused disruption in hospitals across our region, cancelling procedures.
A junior doctor is a qualified doctor who is working whilst training to become a consultant or GP.
With hundreds of operations cancelled and many of the region's hospitals on 'black alert', what does the doctors' strike mean for you?
