Industrial action December 2015

20 November 2015

A message from Vincent Kirchner, Medical Director

Junior doctor BMA members have voted in favour of industrial action on 1 December, 8 December and 16 December 2015 regarding their dispute with the government on proposed changes to the junior doctors’ terms and conditions.

While there has been a lot of content in the media about the impact this will have on patient care please rest assured, our Clinical Directors and Consultants are working together to ensure there is medical cover in all of our services on these days.

Patient safety is a priority and we will put in place plans to ensure that this will not suffer as a result of this industrial action. I’m sure you can appreciate this is a difficult time for our junior doctors. We greatly value them as colleagues and appreciate the tremendous contribution they make to our services.
