NHS Staff Industrial Action on 13 October 2014

Newsdate: 7 October 2014

A number of NHS Trade Unions have confirmed ballot results in favour of strike action. This is scheduled to take place on Monday 13 October between 07:00am and 11:00am.

We would like to reassure our patients that we have worked closely with local Union representatives to ensure that all emergency and essential services will continue to operate during the strike period. This is to ensure patient safety is maintained.

There may be some potential disruption to hospital services during the strike period. Patients’ operations and clinic appointments have been scheduled at times to avoid the strike period where possible. Some patients may experience a delay in appointments scheduled on the 13 October.

The Trust expects services to return to normal from 11:00am onwards.
