Hospital doctors’ strike

Junior doctors are striking for five-days from Thursday 13th of July to Tuesday 18th of July. This will be followed by hospital consultants who will strike on Thursday 20th July and Friday 21st of July.

Hospital services will be affected and waits in emergency departments will be longer than usual.

Please help us to make sure care is available to those who need it.

  • Only going to accident and emergency if you or someone you are with has a life threatening emergency.
  • If you think you may need urgent treatment going to NHS 111 Online, which can direct you to the best place for you.

GP surgeries will be open as usual during the strike, however, we may have reduced doctor appointments.

Non-urgent advice:

If you have a hospital appointment, please attend as planned, unless you are contacted to say otherwise.
