Pirate FM has learnt up to 40% of Cornish surgeries could be involved in the doctors' strikes.

Staff are angry over changes to pensions and the retirement age being raised.

The Primary Care Trust says patients needing urgent care will be able to get it and the out-of-hours GP service will not be affected.

Medical director Sheila McCormick says, "Doctors feel very strongly that they're to make a difference and to treat patients. It goes very much against the grain to have to do anything other than what they've trained for. That's why you haven't seen any industrial action for forty years".
