Industrial strike action Monday 24 November

20 November 2014

On Monday 24 November some staff, including midwives, radiographers and staff in theatres, may plan to take part in a national strike from 7am-12pm.

On Monday 24 November some staff, including midwives, radiographers and staff in theatres, may plan to take part in a national strike from 7am-12pm. Essential, emergency services will not be reduced or compromised. The safety of our patients is of the highest priority.  

To make sure that we have the right staff in place to diagnose and treat emergency patients, some non-urgent appointments in these areas may need to be rescheduled. Each patient with a rescheduled appointment will have been personally written to in order to explain the situation, apologise for any inconvenience caused by this national action and how they can re-book, which we will treat as a priority. 

Urgent maternity appointments will remain available—if you are concerned about your pregnancy that morning, please do not hesitate to call 020 3315 6000.

The Trust will continue to monitor the situation carefully both before and during the period when national strike action is scheduled to take place to make sure emergency services run as normal. 

We hope that patients inconvenienced by this strike appreciate that our focus that morning will need to be on providing excellent emergency services.
