Give healthcare staff priority for petrol, says the BMA – They have no time to be queuing



    Dr David Wrigley, deputy chair of the BMA council, said workers could not afford to spend hours queueing.

    Reiterating calls for the Government to prioritise key workers, he said: “Many of my health and social care colleagues will be getting into the car, nervously looking at the fuel dial.

    “We can’t be waiting two or three hours in a queue for fuel when we have patients to see. So we’re calling on the Government to act today, to put a plan in place and let us know what’s happening.”

    Dr Wrigley suggested that certain petrol stations could be designated for healthcare staff only, adding: “It’s a critical situation.”

    However, a headteachers’ union said prioritising could cause more chaos.

    Paul Whiteman, general secretary of NAHT, warned: “It would be impossible to enforce.”
