COVID-19: Response from Doctors in Unite

In response to Covid-19, Doctors in Unite urges the government to: • Extend day-one sick pay to those on zero hours contracts, in the “gig-economy” and self-employed members of society • Ensure that workers are not under pressure to attend work while they are unwell and may inadvertently pass on the disease: both financially and in regards to staffing. • Allow the NHS to requisite private health care facilities to accommodate effective Covid-19 treatment and quarantine provision if needed
