Junior doctors’ strikes – 9-11 March

Monday 7th March 2016

British Medical Association junior doctor members have voted to hold three 48-hour strikes:

  • 8am on Wednesday 9 March to 8am on Friday 11 March
  • 8am on Wednesday 6 April to 8am on Friday 8 April
  • 8am on Tuesday 26 April to 8am on Thursday 28 April.

QVH is carrying out detailed work to minimise any impact on patients. While patient safety and care quality will not be affected, it is likely that some inpatient, day case and outpatient appointments will need to be rearranged. The minor injuries unit will be open as normal.

We are working to identify patients whose appointments will need to be rearranged so that we can notify them in advance. We aim to ensure that no patient appointments are cancelled on the day.

Please assume that your appointment at QVH is unaffected by the strikes unless we contact you to tell you otherwise.
