Responding to the Green Party General Election manifesto, BMA deputy council chair, Dr Emma Runswick said:

"It is reassuring to see so many policies we’ve campaigned for be championed by the Green Party, in particular supporting junior doctors' in England call for pay restoration and more widely, acknowledging the climate crisis and its impact on the health and wellbeing of the population.

"The Green Party clearly understands that improving the health and wellbeing of our population as well as valuing our doctors and healthcare staff  are hugely important public policies and ones which, if put into action would go a long way to restoring people’s health and the NHS, as well as the quality of care a sustainable workforce could provide."
