Statement on Junior Doctors' 48 hour strike starting Wednesday 9 March

Posted on Wednesday 9th March 2016

Dr David Rogers, Medical Director for NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group and lead for the North Cumbria System Resilience Group, said: “We have already seen our contingency plans tested by strike action by Junior Doctors. Our first priority is patient safety and we can reassure the public that all NHS organisations in Cumbria have tried and tested plans in place.

“As ever, we would urge people using NHS services to ‘help us to help you’ by using the right service for your needs. A+E is for serious and life threatening injuries and conditions. If you aren’t sure if your ailment is an emergency you can get free and quick advice online through NHS Choices or call NHS 111.”

During recent strike action some clinics and outpatients appointments have been cancelled – the numbers have been very small and NHS providers anticipate this will be the case again.
