St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been working closely with doctors to ensure that any impact on patients, due to industrial action by members of the British Medical Association, is minimised today, Thursday 21st June 2012.

As anticipated, there is no significant impact on our services and thanks to careful planning we are currently running business as usual. However, If you are concerned about a specific clinic appointment or operation we would encourage you to contact the number shown at the top of your letter for further advice.

GP surgeries across Wandsworth will be open as usual and we would recommend that the public continue using these services normally.
