Over 20,000 medical workers marched through London on Saturday as part of a protest against Conservative Health Minister Jeremy Hunt's plans to introduce a new contract for junior doctors. The contract changes are part of a proposed government plan to extend NHS working hours to allow greater public access to health services. Medics, however, argue the change will force them to work longer hours for less money, leading to greater risk of burnout.
