Junior doctors industrial action (24-28 February 2024)

British Medical Association (BMA) junior doctors are scheduled to take industrial action from 7am Saturday 24th to 11:59pm Wednesday 28th February 2024.

As a result, we are expecting that a number of junior doctors who work at Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust will be on strike during this time.

To maintain patient safety, some of our services may be disrupted so that our clinical teams can prioritise our most urgent patients and care.

If your scheduled appointment is impacted by the upcoming industrial action, we will be in touch with you as soon as possible to let you know and to provide you with a re-arranged date. We appreciate for anyone currently waiting for an appointment that any changes will be extremely frustrating, and we apologise in advance for the inconvenience this causes to anyone who is affected.

We will be contacting any patients whose appointments may be affected. If you are not contacted, please attend the hospital as normal.

Partnering with universities

Liverpool Women’s has strong links with academia. The University Department of Women’s and Children’s Health is based at Liverpool Women’s Crown Street hospital site and includes a team of senior clinical academic staff. 

Research and collaborative working

Research focuses on clinical trials and Cochrane Systematic Reviews, tropical obstetrics, preterm labour and birth, neonatal drug development, endometriosis, and myometrial contractility.

There is close collaboration between the Trust, the Department of Physiology and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
