NHS strikes in January

Posted by: Mark - Posted on:

Strikes are taking place in some parts of the NHS on 11, 18, 19 and 23 January 2023.

During the strikes, A&E departments and 111 are likely to be extremely busy with longer waiting times than normal. But it’s important to get medical help if you need it.

For urgent help for people aged 5 or over use 111 online. Call 111 for children under 5. Call 999 if it’s a life-threatening emergency.

The NHS will contact you if you have an appointment that needs to be changed. If you have not been contacted, attend your appointment as planned.

GP appointments and services are not affected.
