A number of transport strikes are due to take place this December. If you or your child has an appointment at one of our hospitals or community centres, please plan ahead and do all you can to attend. If you need to cancel your appointment, please contact your clinical team.

Nurses' strike action will take place on 15 and 20 December. Our emergency and time critical services will be open. We'll let you know if your appointment is affected.

Services will remain open during planned rail strikes

As you may be aware, rail strikes are taking place on Saturday 1, Wednesday 5 and Saturday 8 October. 

While no Tube strikes are planned for these dates, there may be some disruption to Transport for London's (TFL) services. 

All appointments and admissions at our hospitals and community sites will still be going ahead as planned unless you are notified otherwise. Please allow extra time for your journey and do all you can to attend. Unfortunately, car parking space is limited at our hospitals and community sites and fills up quickly, so we recommend that you use other types of transport if possible.

If you are unable to attend, please let your clinical team know as soon as possible.

Please be asssured that our Emergency Department remains open 24/7 and will not be affected by any strike action. It is important to attend if you or your child is in need of urgent medical care, or if you are advised to by 111 or another healthcare professional, as our team are always here to help you. We advise that you access the closest emergency department service to where you are located due to the travel disruptions.

Use the TfL journey planner to plan your journey and visit the National Rail and Transport for London websites for the latest strike information.
