The Royal College of Nursing has announced that industrial action will take place on Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February. We'll contact you if your care or your child's care is affected. Ambulance workers are planning strike action on Friday 10 February. Learn more.

A number of transport strikes are due to take place this February. 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.

You'll be asked if you would like to make another appointment, which is usually booked during the session.
