Industrial Action April 2023

industrial action

The Trust is currently in the process of planning our response to industrial action by the British Medical Association between Tuesday 11 and Saturday 15 April.

We anticipate that the majority of appointments will go ahead.

We will directly contact patients whose appointments need to be adjusted; please bear in mind that given the shortness of time, some of this communication may be by text message.

If you do not hear directly from the Trust, please attend for your appointment as planned.

Patients with remaining queries about whether an outpatient appointment will be going ahead on Tuesday 11 or Wednesday 12 April may call the Trust on either Durham 0191 333 2003 or Darlington 01325 743017 between 8am and 12.30pm from Good Friday to Easter Monday.

'As I was very, very nervous, I must have been the worst patient ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough - could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'

Patient, Hysteroscopy Unit, Chester-le-Street Community Hospital
