Dr Steve James is a critical care consultant at King’s College Hospital in London.
When Health Secretary Sajid Javid visited last Friday, he asked the NHS staff about what they thought of the forthcoming mandates that will make Covid vaccination a condition of deployment for NHS staff. 
Dr James spoke out, saying why he was against the mandate and why he hadn’t taken the vaccine himself.

It made headlines across the UK media, in particular coming from a Cambridge-educated NHS frontline doctor. 

Dr James came in to the UnHerd studio to explain his position in more detail to Freddie Sayers.
