Junior Doctors: Industrial Action

Updated: 25.04.16

Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th April 2016 

Junior Doctors across England are planning to stage industrial action on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th April 2016 between the hours of 8am to 5pm.  

This is the most recent in a series of industrial action undertaken by the British Medical Association (BMA) following discussions with the Government over a new contract for Junior Doctors. 

Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (GHNHSFT) has robust plans in place to minimise disruption and to preserve patient care.

Emergency 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.

Operations, outpatient clinics or procedures

Patients who have a planned operation, outpatient clinic or procedure on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th April 2016 should attend as usual unless you hear from us directly to advise you otherwise.

We would like to apologise to patients in advance for any inconvenience that may be caused and we would like to thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
