Industrial Action at Doncaster Hospital

798788530Published by Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust regarding strike action planned to take place Tuesday 12 January 2016:

“Patients are our priority and plans are in place to ensure that disruption during the industrial action by junior doctors is minimised so we can continue to provide safe and effective services to our patients.

“In practice we expect to provide a similar service to that provided on Christmas Day, with junior doctors covering only emergencies and caring for deteriorating or escalating patients. It will mean cancelling some appointments, clinics and elective operations and any patient whose treatment will be postponed due to the action will be contacted directly and made aware of the alternative arrangements.

“The dispute is not with the Trust and we respect the legal right of union members to take action following the ballot, however, our first duty is to provide for the safe and effective care of patients.”
