Choose the right NHS service for you and your family

We are urging people to take extra care and to access NHS services wisely ahead of the festive period and during the upcoming strike action by junior doctors taking place from:

  • 7:00am on Wednesday 20 December – 7:00am on Saturday 23 December
  • 7:00am on Wednesday 3 January – 7:00am on Tuesday 9 January 2024

The strikes are likely to have an impact on some NHS services and see some appointments disrupted.

However, please attend your booked GP or hospital appointments unless you are told otherwise.
