Junior doctorsí strike

The British Medical Association (BMA) has confirmed that planned industrial action by junior doctors will go ahead on Wednesday 10 February.

In a change to previous plans, junior doctors in England will be offering emergency care only for 24 hours from 8.00am on Wednesday 10 February until 8.00am Thursday 11 February.

We will deliver emergency care

In the event that the industrial action is not called off, we have a clear plan in place that will allow us to continue to deliver safe care to our patients. We will continue to provide urgent and emergency care to patients throughout the strike.

We are working hard to keep any outpatient or clinic cancellations to a minimum, although it is likely that we may have to cancel some appointments and planned operations to ensure we that we have enough doctors available to look after our emergency patients.

We encourage anyone with an appointment or planned operation due to take place during the potential strike action to contact the service for further information.

NHS England has also issued advice to patients. For more information please read more here.
