Patient services (6th till 8th April 2016)
As you are aware the British Medical Association (BMA) announced that their junior doctor members were prepared to take part in further strike action in relation to their proposed new contracts.
As a result, further dates of industrial action are planned for:
- 6 – 8 April 2016
During this time emergency care only by junior doctors will be available between 8am on Wednesday 6th April – 8am on Friday 8th April (48 hours).
Some services where junior doctors are not involved in patient care will not be affected.
If there are changes to an appointment that you have arranged at our hospitals on a day of action, we will contact you. If you do not hear from us, please assume your appointment remains unchanged.
St George’s overriding concern and obligation is to provide high quality and safe care to patients during this time. We are, as you would expect, taking the appropriate measures to ensure that services and the quality of patient care we provide are not compromised.
