The NHS is working hard to ensure that as few patients as possible are affected by the industrial action planned for the 12th, 26th & 27th January and 10th February 2016, but some services will need to change.
Please see the NHS Industrial Action Leaflet, which explains how you can access NHS services over this period.

The Care Quality Commission have today published the results of their visit to Wexham Park Hospital in October 2015. They have awarded an overall rating of ‘Good’ with two departments receiving the top rating of ‘outstanding’.
Sarah Bellars, Director of Nursing and Quality for East Berkshire CCGs said ‘This is great news and recognises the hard work of everyone involved. This will be welcome news for patients and the public.
‘We listen to what patients tell us and during the past few months we have been hearing from them about how much they feel the services have improved. I also visit the wards on a regular basis, talking to staff and patients. The difference over the last year has been made very clear to me at those visits.
‘When people are ill and feeling most vulnerable, it is important that they can be confident that their local hospital is safe and offers the care they need. I would like to add my thanks to all staff and the leadership of the organisation who together have made such a difference for patients.’
The CCGs have been involved in supporting the development and the monitoring of action plans for improving services.
