Five-day junior doctors' strike begins

From Morning Report, 6:42 am on 29 April 2019

Thousands of junior doctors are walking off the job from 8am, for their longest strike yet. It's the fifth strike by the members of the Resident Doctors Association and this time will run for five days in all regions except Canterbury, which has been spared due to the Christchurch terror attacks. Members will also protest outside the Health Minister David Clark's office in Dunedin on Monday. Courtney Brown is a junior doctor at Hutt Valley DHB, and is the president of the Resident Doctors' Association.
