Junior Doctors Strike In Wiltshire

Junior doctors in Wiltshire will be taking industrial action between 8am on Tuesday and 8am on Wednesday.

Great Western Hospital

The Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has issued the following advice:

While this is a national dispute with the government, some of our junior doctors will be taking part and we are planning our services accordingly. 

Plans are in place to ensure patient safety is maintained at all times and disruption is kept to a minimum. 

On Tuesday 12 January we will be offering the same services that we would on a Bank Holiday, which means some routine operations have had to be postponed. This is so that we can prioritise patients needing emergency care and other patients needing urgent care, such as cancer patients. 

Unless contacted, attend as normal - Patients booked to attend hospital on Tuesday 12 January will have been contacted directly if their appointment is affected. 

Unless contacted, patients should attend hospital as planned. Patients needing emergency treatment and women in labour should attend as normal.
