Hospitals Trust spokesperson:
“Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (GHNHSFT) has robust plans in place to minimise disruption and to preserve patient care.
“Patients with life threatening or serious conditions will continue to be seen at our A&E departments. Patients with minor injuries or less serious conditions should access alternative health services where they will often receive care in a more effective and timely manner. Visit www.asapglos.nhs.uk or download the ASAP app for more information.
“Patients who have a planned operation, outpatient clinic or procedure on Tuesday 12th January should attend as usual unless they hear from us directly to advise otherwise.”
