Industrial Action

We are expecting disruption to our services as a result of planned industrial action by junior doctors from 7.00am on Thursday 6 June to 7.00am on Saturday 8 June 2024.

Our focus will be maintaining safe services for our acutely unwell patients within our hospitals and inpatient facilities.

Our message to patients and service users is that they should attend all scheduled appointments unless contacted by the Trust to advise otherwise.

If you require urgent medical or mental health help during the duration of the strike action, then you should attend the Emergency Department or call 999. Please be aware that it may be busier and you may have to wait longer. Patients will be triaged and seen in order of clinical priority.

To help us to cope with the expected impacts of the industrial action we strongly encourage those with an urgent or minor matter, which is not life-threatening, to use the Phone First service. Please call 0300 020 6000 (8.00am to midnight). Alternatively, please consider other healthcare options, such as your GP, GP out-of-hours or our Urgent Care and Treatment Centre.

Postponed services:

  • 1,312 Outpatient appointments
  • 95 inpatient / Day case procedures
