From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 30 April 2019

A senior doctor says there's a major lack of trust between junior doctors and their employers and it will have to be fixed. Today is the second day of a five-day strike by members of the Resident Doctors Association. It's their fifth and the longest strike by them in an employment row that's gone on for over a year. David Galler is an intensive care doctor at Middlemore Hospital in south Auckland. He told health correspondent Karen Brown the relationship between the doctors and district health boards has never been worse.
