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
We anticipate that the majority of appointments will go
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
'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.'
