Junior Doctors industrial action and Bank Holiday weekend information

Please don’t use A&E unless it is an emergency – there will be long waits over the next few days due to the Bank holiday demand and Junior Doctors’ strike action.

There is planned strike action by junior doctors (all doctors except consultants) from 7 am next Tuesday (11th April) to 7 am Saturday (15th April) which means we will have less doctors available in A&E and so waiting times for non-life threatening illness or injuries will be much longer than normal.

Unless it is a real emergency please 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. Click here https://sheffieldurgentcare.co.uk/ for opening times and locations for alternative options..

Regrettably we are also having to postpone some outpatient appointments and procedures and patients will be contacted directly if their appointment is affected. We will work as quickly as possible to re-arrange any postponed care.
