Planned Industrial Action by Junior Doctors, 24-28 February 2024


Further planned industrial action by Junior Doctors (all doctors except consultants) is scheduled to take place between 7am on Saturday 24th February to 7am Thursday 29th February.

We will be prioritising patient safety and emergency care but we are likely to have considerably fewer doctors available during this time and as a consequence waiting times will be much longer than normal for less urgent conditions or injuries.

The Minor Injuries Unit at the Hallamshire Hospital will be closed throughout the period of action. If you need non urgent medical advice or if you are not sure what service you need, please call 111. 111 can also directly book appointments out of hours with a GP. Broad Lane Walk in Centre in the City Centre is also open as normal to provide urgent care without an appointment.

Please help us during this time by:

• Only using A&E if it is an emergency. Alternatives to A&E and information on when A&E is appropriate can be found at sheffieldurgentcare.co.uk.

• Please make sure you have all the medicines you need for the strike period.

• Please pick up relatives promptly when they are ready to be discharged.

Patients who have planned procedures or appointments should attend as planned unless contacted by us. If your appointment or procedure is postponed, we will rearrange it as quickly as we can.
