Junior doctors strike: 13-16 March
Junior doctors are due to take part in industrial action from 7am on Monday 13 March to 6:59am on Thursday 16 March. During this time, we will be reducing some of our planned care and outpatient services.
Patient safety is our number one priority, we are doing this to ensure the maintenance of all essential services including our Emergency Department.
If you have an outpatient appointment or planned procedure scheduled for these dates, we will contact you if it needs to be rebooked to another date. If you do not hear from us, please attend your appointment as normal. We apologise for any inconvenience or disruption this might cause.
Here’s how you can help
Over these days our Emergency Department is likely to be very busy. There are a number of ways you can help us care for people who need it most.
- If you’re caring for vulnerable people, such as the elderly, children and people with long-term conditions, get in touch with your GP if you have concerns about accessing medical care.
- Remember there are other healthcare options available as well as calling 999. You can visit your pharmacist or GP, call or visit NHS 111.
