Industrial Action Update #10

07/01/2020

There will be disruption to Trust services on Wednesday 8 January 2020 as result of strike action by the Royal College of Nursing.

Patient and service user safety is of the utmost importance. To help mitigate the impact of the widespread disruption, we have cancelled 1,232 outpatient appointments and 113 inpatient and day case procedures. All people affected by these cancellations have been written to and given a new appointment date.

If you have not received communication about your appointment being cancelled, please attend as normal.

It is anticipated there will be greater pressures on urgent and emergency care services in the Trust, including the Emergency Departments.

We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause patients, service users and families.
