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.

Calling all teddies

One of the great privileges of my job is to be able to see at first hand the services we deliver to our patients and their families. Despite a busy diary, I always set aside time to *go walkabout* to see at first hand the work of areas like our Neonatal Unit. This has just been the subject of a highly praised ITV series called Baby Hospital which you can now see via the ITV website.

I was proud of the way the series portrayed our hospital but also how it captured the warmth and spirit of our city in such a positive way, showing how families support each other in sometimes heartbreaking times.

This Saturday, September 10, from 11am, you too can *go walkabout* when we hold our popular Annual Members Meeting and Open Day. This offers an insight into our services but also a fun day for families. Make sure your children bring their teddies so they can take a trip to theatre!

Parents of older children are being urged this week to make sure their daughters get the cervical cancer vaccine. One of our patients, supporting the campaign, tells on our website how we were able to save her fertility when she had the disease, enabling her to go on to have a beautiful daughter.

Just a word about the recent local disturbances - and that's *Thanks* to our staff who as always went the extra mile to ensure patients felt safe and reassured and that there was no disruption to their care.
