Please support us by choosing the right healthcare service for you during the latest round of industrial action. 

Consultants and Junior doctors are taking industrial between 7am on Monday 2nd October and 7am on Thursday 5th October.

As part of the NHS we are asking patients to choose services appropriately during industrial action and take simple steps to help ensure care is available to patients who need it most. This includes using 111 online as the first port of call for health needs, and only using 999 if it is a life-threatening emergency.

If we have not contacted you, please attend your appointment as planned. The Trust will contact you if your appointment needs to be rescheduled due to strike action.

Further coordinated junior doctor and consultant industrial action is planned for early October across three days (2-4 October). For support and advice on when to call 999 and when to go to A&E, please click on the relevant links.
