Junior Doctors Industrial Action

Junior Doctors Strike
Junior Doctors Strike

Hospital-based junior doctors and trainee GPs will strike over five days from 7am on Saturday 24th February to 11.59pm on Wednesday 28th February in an ongoing dispute with the Government about pay.

Junior doctors are qualified doctors in clinical training. They have completed a medical degree and can have up to nine years’ of working experience as a hospital doctor, depending on their specialty, or up to five years working and gaining experience to become a general practitioner (GP). All junior doctors work under the supervision of a senior doctor.

Significant disruption to services is anticipated. It is important that people do not hesitate to come forward to access care if they need it. NHS 111 online should be their first port of call if they need urgent health advice on days of strike action.

Patients with appointments at hospitals and GP practices are asked to attend these as planned unless they are told otherwise. If you are not contacted, please attend your appointment as planned
