Industrial Action

04/10/2011

During the official Unison strike action on Wednesday 5 October, it has been agreed with the Trade Union that emergency and essential health and social care services will continue to be provided.

To minimise the wider impact of the strike action on patients, a total of 1,200 outpatient appointments for the day have been cancelled. A letter has been sent to everyone affected. These appointments will be rescheduled as soon as possible.

Patient who are due to attend for appointments should continue to do so unless they have been contacted.  However there may be some disruptions and delays on our main sites.
