A number of trade unions have balloted for their members to take strike action in response to the 2014/15 NHS national pay dispute.
The industrial action is scheduled to take place on Monday 24 November 2014 between 7.00am and 11.00am, followed by working-to-rule for the rest of that week until Sunday 30 November.
We believe there will be some disruption to services on that day but we are working hard to ensure that we have contingency plans in place to ensure the continued safe delivery of essential services.
We will post information about any changes to services on our website www.bridgewater.nhs.uk. If patients have an appointment with any of our services between 24 and 30 November 2014 they are advised to contact the clinic or service or call Bridgewater’s Patient Services Team on 0800 587 0562.
We would ask people to bear with us and think carefully about which NHS services they access on these dates.
