Junior Doctors Committee

Last updated:

Committee overview

The Junior Doctors Committee (JDC) stands up for the rights of all junior doctors on education, training and contractual issues. We negotiate to shape junior doctors' work and training in the NHS. Find out all about us here.


Our priorities

Over the last few months we have been tirelessly working on a negotiated agreement with the government to get junior doctors a contract that is fair for doctors and safe for patients. Keep up with the latest developments on the negotiations.


Who we are

Elected junior doctors from national and regional junior doctors committees form the core of the JDC. We represent the views of junior doctors across the UK to the government and medico-political bodies including royal colleges and educational bodies. Find out who sits on the committee.


Our meetings

We meet quarterly to discuss the issues that are most important to doctors in training.

Who can come

These meetings are open to JDC members. Request more information on how to become a JDC member. You should also get in touch with your regional junior doctors committee - details below.
