Industrial action

18th September 2023 - Hot Topics

Consultants and junior doctors are taking industrial action from 7am on Monday 2nd October until 7am on Thursday 5th October.

On this day there will be a Christmas day level of service.

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.
