9 Dec 2022, 1:46 p.m.

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has announced that industrial action will take place on Thursday 15th and Tuesday 20th December 2022.

Qadar Zada, Chief Operating Officer, said:

“In response to the planned industrial action announced by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), we are making plans to minimise disruption as much as possible and to preserve patient care.

“Patients who have a planned operation, outpatient clinic or procedure on either Thursday 15, or Tuesday 20 December 2022 should attend as usual unless they hear from us directly to advise otherwise.

“Patients with life-threatening or serious conditions will continue to be seen at our Emergency 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 or download the ASAP app for more information.

“There will be no disruption to patient visiting arrangements on either of these days.”
