I'm a doctor. Current NHS pension taxation rules are unfairly hitting senior doctors hard with many forced to retire early/reduce hours. This crisis cant go on. @J_Donaldson_MP as my MP, please will you attend @TheBMA pensions event on Weds 6 July

Today I met a police officer about death threats I’ve got for being a human rights lawyer. Today I read the PM’s words criticising lawyers representing asylum seekers. These things are not unrelated. This Government is undermining the rule of law, & putting us all at risk.
