Junior Dr's to strike for 6 days from 3rd January

The British Medical Association (BMA) has announced that junior doctors are taking strike action for six days from Wednesday 3 January 2024 to Tuesday 9th January 2024.

The industrial action is a national dispute between the Government and Trades Unions about terms and conditions for junior doctors working in the NHS.

On strike days, A&E departments and NHS 111 are likely to be extremely busy, with longer waiting times than normal. But it's important to get medical help if you need it.

For urgent help for people aged 5 or over use 111 online. Call 111 for children under 5. 

Call 999 if it's a life-threatening emergency.

The NHS will contact you if you have an appointment that needs to be changed. If you have not been contacted, attend your appointment as planned.

GP appointments and services are not affected.
