MOST family doctors provided a normal service during yesterday’s strike action.

Out of 240 GP practices across Merseyside, 147 were open as usual. 86 offered a limited service and seven were mixed surgeries in which not all doctors took part in the strike.

But doctors’ representative Dr Rob Barnett denied that it showed a crisis of confidence in the British Medical Association’s stance over proposed pension changes.

He said: “I feel it was important to try to get our point of view over to people and the patients I have spoken to really do understand.

“These changes do not just affect doctors, it is all healthcare professionals - and others within the public sector.”
