Industrial action

Industrial action
25th September 2023

Consultants are taking action from 7am on Tuesday 19th September to 7am on Thursday 21st September. Junior doctors are taking industrial action from 7am on Wednesday 20th September until 7am on Saturday 23rd September.

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