Ahead of tomorrow's doctors strike, the first in 40 years, people have been raising concerns over the affect to service, and also questioning whether doctors should be able to take industrial action at all.
The main arguments focus around damaging affects to the provision of heath care, doctors' sizeable salaries, and the fact that we pay for their services through our taxes.
The British Medical Association has however said that disruption to service will be minimal, with less than a quarter of doctors thought to be going on strike.
The planned action has also caused concern among doctors themselves. Dr Greg Place, chair of the local BMA commitee, said despite doctors' "steaming fury" over the pensions issue, they were worried the action could backfire. He said: "We will have to do everything we don't do on Thursday on Wednesday and Friday instead. The only people who will suffer are us."
The doctors' strike is the latest in a series of public sector industrial action, as proposed cuts threaten to impact on pay and pensions contributions.
