Plea to shelve contract imposition

Medical royal college leaders have called for health secretary Jeremy Hunt to shelve his plan to impose the junior doctors’ contract.

The college, and of course I, will continue to be supportive of our juniors. ‘Health secretaries and presidents come and go. But we hope that you will not. ‘It is not in the interests of our patients to have unhappy, unmotivated, unsupported psychiatrists, and I promise you that we as a college will do everything we can to avoid that eventuality.

Authors: Mulchandani R, Power HS, Cavallaro FL Abstract Caesarean section (CS) rates have risen worldwide in the past two decades, particularly in middle and high-income countries. In addition to changing maternal and health system factors, there is growing evidence that provider factors may contribute to rising unnecessary caesareans. The aim of this review was to assess the evidence for the association between individual provider characteristics, attitudes towards CS and decision-making for CS. A search was conducted in May 2018 in PubMed and Web of Science with 23 papers included in our final review. Our results...
