Royal College of Nursing members at our Trust are taking part in strike action Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February from 7.00am to 8.00pm. This will impact services at our hospitals.

If you are due to attend an appointment and we haven't already contacted you, please come as planned.

On days where there is strike action, patients should only call 999 if it is a medical or mental health emergency (when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk).
