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.

Liverpool Women's Learner Awards 2022

Continuous development of skills and knowledge is vital in providing the highest standards of care for our patients and to meet the trust vision ‘to be the recognised leader in healthcare for women, babies and their families’. LWH is committed to being an outstanding employer and a learning organisation aligned to our core value of ‘we learn’.

A celebration event took place on 7th September 2022 at the Liverpool Women’s and was attended by staff who were congratulated by the Chairman, Robert Clarke and Michelle Turner, Chief People Officer & Deputy Chief Executive and members of the Trust Board of Directors. 

Michelle Turner, said, "Here at Liverpool Women’s we believe that learning is fundamental to safe care and a great experience. We look to support the personal and professional development of all staff regardless of role, band, or profession”.

The Liverpool Women’s work together to develop a culture where everybody:

  • Actively seeks feedback from those we care for and those we work with.
  • Reflects on that feedback through the lens of “how could it be even better”
  • Takes every opportunity afforded to us to learn and further develop


The awards are a recognition and a celebration of those staff who have taken the opportunity offered to them to learn and further develop their skills so that they can be the best they can be and offer the best care.

Learning that the staff have undertaken includes, the LWH Leadership programme, Apprenticeships, Care Certificate, Mentorship, Coaching and Minute Taking.

It was a positive event, enjoyed by all with many saying it has inspired them to further their training.
