11 January 2016
As you may have heard, junior doctors have voted to take industrial action.
Regrettably we may have to cancel some non-urgent operations on strike days (12 January; 26 January; 10 February) as many of our consultants will be needed to attend urgent and emergency cases at local NHS hospitals.
We don’t want to cancel any non-urgent surgery unless absolutely necessary so we will continue to assess the likely impact of the industrial action and what it means for our patients.
In the event that we need to reschedule operations, we will contact as soon as possible and offer a new date in due course. We would like to apologise in advance for the inconvenience this may cause our patients.
