Junior doctors’ strike 13 – 16 March 2023

10 Mar 23

As you may know, junior doctors across England are staging a three-day strike from Monday 13 March until Thursday 16 March. Junior doctors in HPFT are taking part in this action and we respect their right to do so.

Our priority is to ensure that we are able to provide a safe level of care for service users during this period.

We have put in place comprehensive plans to minimise disruption resulting from the strike but we have had to cancel some non-urgent appointments. If this applies to you we will have already contacted you and we apologise for the inconvenience. If you have not been contacted and you have an appointment during this period, please attend as planned.

Regardless of any strike action taking place, it is really important that service users who need urgent treatment continue to come forward as normal, especially in an emergency or life-threatening cases.

You can contact the Single Point of Access (SPA) Mental Health Helpline 24/7 on:

  • Freephone 0800 6444 101, or
  • NHS 111 and select option 2 for mental health services

The helpline is staffed by experienced mental health professionals and support staff.

If someone is seriously ill or injured, dial 999 for the emergency services.
