Consultants’ Industrial Action

Consultants’ Industrial Action
24th July 2023

Consultants working for the Trust are taking industrial action at 7am on Thursday 20th July until 7am on Saturday 22nd July.

We have been working with senior clinicians and managers at the Trust on contingency plans to maintain safe services during the consultants’ industrial action.

Please attend your appointment as usual unless you have been contacted to say it needs to be rearranged. Please seek the care you need during industrial action and use services wisely by going to NHS 111 online as the first port of call. Call 999 in a life-threatening emergency.

During strike action we will prioritise resources to protect emergency treatment, critical care, neonatal care and trauma, and ensure we prioritise patients who have waited the longest for elective care and cancer surgery. We will only cancel appointments and procedures where it is necessary and will reschedule immediately, where possible.
