Statement on the BMA announcement of further dates for industrial action and the College’s MRCEM OSCE in June

23 May 2023

The British Medical Association (BMA) has announced further industrial action by junior doctors between 7am on Wednesday 14 June 2023 and 7am on Saturday 17 June 2023.

The proposed dates for industrial action clash with the College’s MRCEM OSCE examination due to run from Monday 12 June to Friday 23 June.

The College is assessing the impact of the planned industrial action on candidates and what contingencies can be put in place.

We understand the concerns that our members have. Please be assured we will do all we can to minimise impact.

We are in discussions with the College’s Emergency Medicine Trainees Association (EMTA) and the College’s forum for Emergency Medicine Specialty and Specialist Doctors (EMSAS).

We will be in touch with those directly affected as soon as possible.

In the meantime, if any candidates or members have queries or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and contact
