The Liberal Democrats declared today "National Don't Get Sick" day to draw attention to the shortage of doctors on wards.

A former junior doctor, Liberal Democrat MP Dr Evan Harris, said today that in hospitals all over Britain junior doctors would be taking to the wards, and they would be unsupervised. Hospital doctors call this "Don't Get Sick" day because they hope pressures on freshers are not too great, said Dr Harris, a junior doctor in Liverpool and Oxford before he became a registrar.
