England's senior doctors may take industrial action if the offer of 1% pay rise is not improved.
Paid and unpaid overtime may be stopped if the figure is not increased to at least 4% says the British Medical Association. The BMA have also said industrial action may impact patient clinics and attempts to shorten waiting lists if it goes ahead.
The Department of Health has said the government was committed to a wage rise for NHS staff, including consultants.
