This is a national dispute which relates to the Government’s proposals to introduce a new junior doctors’ contract, and is not directed at individual hospitals.
Emergency care is not affected by this strike as junior doctors will continue to work in those areas. The majority of our outpatients and surgical procedures will be unaffected. Some elective care will need to be rescheduled and we apologise to patients for the inconvenience this may cause. We will be in communication with any patient whose appointment is potentially affected. Otherwise patients are asked to attend the hospital as normal.
