Junior doctors’ strike 26 – 27 April 2016

 147 operations and 173 appointments have been postponed this week at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust as a result of the junior doctors’ strike due to take place between 26 – 27 April 2016.  

To minimise inconvenience for our patients, the Trust has been undertaking significant planning in preparation for the strike action and avoided booking patients in to clinics and operations a number of weeks in advance of the strike days.

All patients whose treatment has been affected have been notified. Therefore, if you have an appointment at the Trust and have not heard from us, you should attend as normal. 

Accident and Emergency departments remain open for patients with serious and life threatening conditions. As is always the case, we would urge people to think about the best place to access care if they become ill. Getting the right care, first time, will ensure that they get the best possible treatment, leaving emergency health services free for those who need them most.
 

  

 If you become ill with a non-urgent condition and need advice, please visit www.nhs.uk or go to your local pharmacist. If you need medical help but it’s not an emergency, call 111, or contact your GP.
