Thousands of junior doctors posted picket lines outside hospitals around England Tuesday in the first all-out strike in the history of Britain's National Health Service.The two-day strike marks the first time that vital NHS emergency services have been affected by an industrial action.The strike reflects the impasse between the government and the junior doctors – physicians with up to 10 years experience – over the government's pledge to expand National Health Service care on weekends.Mark Porter, head of the BMA, told the BBC that senior consulting physicians would provide emergency care while the junior doctors are on strike.
