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.

Before you come to hospital

Before coming into hospital, make sure the hospital staff know about your disability and what reasonable adjustments you need.

What do we mean by Reasonable Adjustments?

A reasonable adjustment is when someone changes how they do things to make it better for you.

People with a disability have a legal right for reasonable adjustments to be made so they can get the same benefits from healthcare services as everyone else.

Common reasonable adjustments include:

  • using pictures, large print or simpler words to say what's happening
  • booking longer appointments
  • putting an appointment at the beginning or end of the day, if you find it hard to be in a busy waiting room
  • Being accompanied by someone who cares or supports you including overnight if you are admitted to hospital.

When identified the reasonable adjustments are written down in a health action plan that those people caring for you in hospital can use.

Other support and reasonable adjustments we can make 

The below video is an example of some of the adjustments we can support to make an individual's experience easier and more comfortable.
