The loss in earnings faced by individual striking doctors depends on their normal level of earnings and the extent to which their working patterns for the week falls within the periods of strike action. However, based on average earnings, a Junior Doctor taking part in five full days of strike action can be estimated to lose around £675 in gross earnings.
