Boris Johnson is under growing pressure to fire top aide Dominic Cummings as 15 Conservative MPs, bishops and now NHS staff have called for his resignation over suggestions he broke lockdown rules.
Dr Dominic Pimenta, who is cardiology registrar, tweeted a picture of himself wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), saying: “This stuff is hot and hard work. I haven’t seen my parents since January.
Dr Pimenta is adamant he will announce his decision to resign by the end of the week if Mr Cummings is still in office. He said: “I found it incredibly insulting to see the whole cabinet doubling down on this issue and undermining the public who are working incredibly hard to follow the guidance, it’s a betrayal.
“NHS staff have bent over backwards to meet this incredible challenge, spending hundreds of extra hours in meetings and drawing up timetables to care for patients.”
