Doctor, doctor: why is my GP going on strike?
Patients have been warned to expect delays in treatment and disruption in hospitals as Britain's doctors voted to go on strike for the first time in nearly 40 years.
The decision to take industrial action over pensions on 21 June was immediately condemned by Andrew Lansley, the Health Secretary.
He said that, even after the changes, a new doctor joining the NHS could expect a pension of more than £53,000 at age 65 while if they worked three years longer they could expect a pension of about £68,000 a year. Doctors said this failed to take into account the increased contributions they would be expected to make under the new scheme.
