Strike action

Members of the Royal College of Nursing and Unison will strike on 20 and 21 December.

Unless advised otherwise, please continue to attend our hospitals as normal. You do not need to contact us - we will contact you directly if your appointment is impacted.

Our Emergency Departments are extremely busy so please only attend if you have an urgent concern.

For less urgent concerns, please visit where there is an online symptom checker available.
