MORE than a third of doctors in England believe that the government’s tiered lockdown system will have no impact on the spread of coronavirus, a survey revealed today.
The British Medical Association (BMA) also found that more than half of healthcare staff are “quite anxious” about coping over autumn and winter.
Almost two-thirds (65 per cent) said that staffing shortages are a concern in the months ahead, while 60 per cent said they are concerned about their personal health and well-being.
And 58 per cent said that they are concerned about the ability to cope with demand from non-Covid patients.
On the government’s tiered lockdown system, more than a third (37 per cent) said it would have no impact or be ineffective.
More than 6,000 medics were questioned as part of the survey and the findings show the “enormous scale of the challenges” facing the NHS, the BMA said.
BMA chairman Dr Chaand Nagpaul said: “Instead of a few short weeks of suppression, bringing economic and emotional misery for those in the areas affected, we need a national prevention strategy that has a lasting impact and gets growing infection rates under control across England.”
