Statement on Junior Doctors Strike April 26 and April 27

Dr David Rogers, Medical Director for NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and lead for the North Cumbria System Resilience Group said:

“All of the NHS organisations across Cumbria have tried and tested plans in place, however, unlike during previous periods of industrial action we know that emergency cover is being withdrawn. Our Trusts have had to increase cover by increasing consultants and other NHS staff during this time. It could lead to greater disruption for planned operations and outpatient appointments than we have seen in previous strikes.

“The public can help the NHS by thinking carefully before using NHS services. We would urge people to make use of pharmacists, www.nhs.uk|  and NHS 111, if appropriate. They can all provide helpful advice.”

Industrial action is planned for Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 April 2016 - Full withdrawal of labour between the hours of 8am and 5pm (18 hours in total).

What should I do if I am a patient who may be affected?

If you have an appointment scheduled on the days when Industrial Action is taking place the hospital or service will contact you if you are affected.
