NHS strikes

Strikes are planned to take place in some parts of the NHS during the winter.

On strike days, A&E departments and NHS 111 are likely to be extremely busy, with longer waiting times than normal. But it's important to get medical help if you need it.

For urgent help for people aged 5 or over use 111 online. Call 111 for children under 5. Call 999 if it's a life-threatening emergency.

The NHS will contact you if you have an appointment that needs to be changed. If you have not been contacted, attend your appointment as planned.

GP appointments and services are not affected.

To find out when strikes are planned and get more advice about what to do, see information about NHS industrial action from NHS England.
