The British Medical Association (BMA) has announced that junior doctors are taking strike action for five days from Saturday 24 February 2024.
The industrial action is a national dispute between the Government and Trades Unions about terms and conditions for junior doctors working in the NHS.
Junior doctors at our Trust will be participating in the strikes which take place from 7am on Saturday 24 February to 11.59pm on Wednesday 28 February 2024.
The safety of our patients and staff remains our top priority. We are committed to keeping disruption to services to a minimum on these dates and we have measures in place to ensure the safety and welfare of our patients and our staff.
We will contact you directly if we need to re-schedule your appointment. However, if you have an appointment on these days, please assume this is going ahead unless you have been told otherwise.
