Junior doctors to meet DHB again as latest strike ends

From Morning Report, 7:34 am on 28 February 2019

Junior doctors are back in talks today in a final bid to reach agreement with hospital bosses before their current pay deal lapses at midnight. Six weeks of rolling two-day strikes around the country have forced hospitals to postpone much non-urgent surgery. The latest industrial action ends at 8 o'clock this morning. No further strikes have been notified, and there are signs of a last-ditch push for agreement. Health correspondent Karen Brown has the details.
