Junior doctors’ strikes - patient information

The British Medical Association (BMA) has announced that junior doctors will be participating in strike action from 7am on Thursday 27 June until 7am on Tuesday 2 July.

Some of the junior doctors who work at our Trust will be taking part in the strike action. While we expect that most of our services will continue throughout the strikes, some clinics may be rescheduled.

Everyone who has an appointment should attend unless we have contacted you to reschedule. If we have not contacted you, please attend your appointment as planned.

The arrangements we have put in place to cover staff taking part in the industrial action may mean that your care is provided by someone different to who you would usually see.

Regardless of any strike action taking place, it is really important that you continue to come forward for care and support in the same way as usual.

You can contact the mental health team that provides your care for help and support during office hours. For urgent mental health support out of hours, call our 24/7 Mental Health Crisis Line on 0800 028 8000.

Please only use 999 if it is a life-threatening or mental health emergency (when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk). Our 24/7 Mental Health Crisis Line (0800 028 8000) should be your first port of call if you need help urgently for your mental health, but it's not an emergency.

For more information on when to call 999 and when to go to A&E, visit the NHS website.

More information on the strikes is available from the NHS website.
