Industrial action update

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has confirmed that their members will be taking part in national industrial action, in the form of a strike, on Sunday 30 April until Tuesday 2 May, from 8pm-8pm.

Our focus is to maintain patient safety and our teams are working hard to ensure that we prioritise patients who require emergency treatment.

Due to the reduction in nursing staff across our hospitals, planned surgery and outpatient appointments will be affected.

We will contact you if your appointment or procedure needs to be rescheduled due to the strike action. If we have not contacted you, please attend as planned.

Our emergency services remain open and you should continue to come forward as normal in emergency and life-threatening cases - when someone is seriously ill or injured, or their life is at risk.

Where the situation is not life-threatening, alternative support will be available through NHS111 online or by calling 111.  

Visit the NHS UK website for more information on when to call 999 and when to go to A&E.
