Junior doctors have used their days on strike to teach other people how to save lives.
A group of medics from across east London gathered outside Stratford station on Thursday to teach passers-by how to perform CPR.
Beth Goulden said: “We don’t want to be on strike, but we thought we’d use the time to do something productive rather than stand on a picket line.
“We did this last time we were on strike as well and had about 300 people take part, which was great.”
The 28-year-old explained that someone performing CPR on a patient before they arrive at hospital could make all the difference in whether they survive or not.
