Liberal Democrat Health Spokesperson Norman Lamb said:
“This suspension of the strike is welcome and it shows how serious the Junior Doctors are to resolve the issues at stake, it is now up to the Government to step up to the plate and do their part too.
“The Government now need to come back, really negotiate and take the threat of imposing a new contract away.
“We need a cross party commission to look at the future of NHS and social care funding. It is crucial we come up with a new settlement to ensure stability in the years to come and a fair deal for patients and NHS staff”.
