JK Rowling has shown her support for junior doctors on social media, saying they should not be accused of “greed”.

The author, who is married to a doctor, took to Twitter to say she is backing the strike.

She said: “Doctors who have been loyal 2 the NHS for years rather than chase £ abroad don’t deserve to be accused of greed.”

In another tweet, she said: “Every doctor I know fears making a mistake above all else. This contract spreads the same resources more thinly.”
