Industrial Action Posted or Updated on 25 Jun 2024

Unions representing doctors in training have announced a number of strikes. Ambulance services, patient transport and NHS111 are not part of this industrial action.

  • The NHS is working hard to keep patients safe during strikes, while delivering the best care possible, and patients should continue to attend appointments as planned unless contacted to reschedule.  
  • Nobody should put off seeking only urgent or emergency care during the strikes, with key services continuing to operate. Please continue to call 999 in an emergency.  
  • Anyone who has an appointment which is affected by the industrial action will be contacted.  
  • We are asking people to attend any of their health and care appointments as usual if they haven’t been contacted.  
  • Please continue to use or contact NHS111 first for general guidance, advice and urgent care needs, this is a free service available 24 hours a day. 

Thank you.
