Norovirus Ward Restrictions

Junior Doctor’s Industrial Action 

Information for patients

The British Medical Association (BMA) has announced that junior doctors will take part in further industrial action and there will be a full withdrawal of their labour for five days between 8am and 5pm from Wednesday, October 5 to Friday, October 7 and again on Monday, 10 October and Tuesday, 11 October. Like other NHS hospitals we are prepared for events that can cause disruption to services. We therefore have contingency plans in place to cover industrial action and our highest priority is to provide a safe service to our patients.

Advice for our patients

While there will be a reduction to our normal services, we are advising patients that unless they are directly contacted by the hospital, they should attend their outpatient appointment as usual. We will also notify patients if we have to cancel their operation or procedure. Where any disruption to normal services is likely to occur we apologise to patients for any inconvenience this may cause. For further information on strike action please visit the NHS Choices webpage at
