Industrial action 12th January 2016
19th January 2016

Due to the junior doctors’ strike action between 8am on Tuesday 12th January and 8am on Wednesday 13th January some appointments and procedures have been rescheduled. If you are affected you will be contacted directly by a member of staff.

It is important that if you are not contacted by hospital staff, that you attend your appointment as usual.

If you are in labour during the strike period, you will see no change to your maternity care.

Our priority will be to ensure that safe emergency, urgent and inpatient services are maintained.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused to patients whose procedures and appointments have been rescheduled.

As always, we would ask patients to only use Accident and Emergency if absolutely necessary.  If you are unsure about where you should go, you can call NHS 111 at any time night or day for free health advice and to be directed towards the most appropriate health service for your need.
