Junior doctors' industrial action:
information for patients

We are expecting some disruption to our hospital services on Tues 1, Weds 2, Tues 8 and Weds 16 December, after doctors-in-training voted to take industrial action.
We expect to run all emergency services on these dates along with other urgent care services, however it is likely to impact some planned procedures and some outpatient clinics.
We will contact patients where there are any changes to their appointment. For further details please click here.
