16 March 2023

Industrial action is planned for junior doctors (all doctors except consultants and specialists) from 7am on March 13th until 7am on March 16th 2023.

We are expecting to have much fewer doctors working during the strike period than usual and the Minor Injuries Unit at the Hallamshire Hospital will be closed.

We are therefore asking you to help us by only using the Accident and Emergency department if it is indeed an emergency. Call 111 or visit your local pharmacist, GP practice or the NHS Walk In Centre on Broad Lane for advice and/or treatment for minor illnesses and injuries. Choosing the right urgent care (sheffieldurgentcare.co.uk) has more information.

Regrettably we are also having to postpone some outpatient appointments and procedures. We never take the decision to cancel an appointment/procedure lightly as we are aware how stressful this is for patients and their family members and appointments/procedures will be rescheduled as quickly as possible. You will be contacted directly if your appointment is affected.
