GP resigns from BMA over doctors strike
A GP who resigned from the British Medical Association over industrial action this week has spoken of his frustration.
Dr Phillip Pritchard, from the Culperhay Surgery in Wotton-under-Edge, left the BMA in protest over Thursday's action.
He said: "We were sent ballot papers and there were two questions – one was do you want to take action, which I said yes to, and the second was do you want to take strike action, which I didn't agree to.
"The pensions deal we're being offered is still a good deal. It was a very good deal, but now it's just a good deal.

"I think it's immoral for us to strike when we have to face people who are having their pensions eroded in the private sector, when we are going to be a lot better off.
"I just felt that I had been misrepresented in this case. I have been a member of the BMA for a long time, and I've paid almost £500 a year to be a member, but I didn't agree with this action."
