You may be aware that junior doctors across the country have voted to take industrial action on Wednesday 9 March, starting at 8am, for 48 hours.
The safety of our patients during these periods of industrial action is our absolute priority. Senior clinical staff will cover the usual duties of our junior doctors on hospital wards so that our inpatients can receive the care that they require.
Unfortunately, we may have to cancel some outpatient clinics and non-emergency surgery. We will ensure that any patients who will be impacted by this will be notified. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Patients who require emergency treatment will be seen and treated as quickly as possible. However, those in less urgent need of care may experience longer waiting times than normal. If you have a minor injury or illness, or you’re not sure where to go for treatment, please call NHS111 for advice or contact your GP practice.
