British hospital dentists take industrial action

The British Dental Association (BDA) is supporting industrial action by dentists providing emergency dental care at hospital clinics.

The three-day action has been taken following a Government decision to impose a new contract on these dentists in England.

The BDA is supporting junior hospital dentists to ensure a safe and fair contract is put in place.

Meanwhile in Victoria, the Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch, is supporting an industrial campaign by dentists working at community clinics, who are seeking wage parity with their colleagues employed by hospital dental clinics.
