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.

About us

Putting patients first is at the heart of everything we do. Liverpool Women's Charity is registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales – registration number 1048294. The charity works hard to raise funds on behalf of the Trust to enhance overall patient experience by providing services and equipment above what is normally funded by the NHS. These enhancements make a big difference to the comfort and well being of our patients. 

The aim of Liverpool Women’s Charity

Our charitable programmes fully support the entire range of patient services. The aim of the Liverpool Women's Charity is to support the care given to patients and their families. Alongside that main aim we also help to fund research and staff welfare initiatives as well as providing greater access to training and development opportunities.

Our Mascot

The Liverpool Women's Charity is supported by our mascot 'Kitty', named after the famous female Kitty Wilkinson (1785-1860) who pioneered the public Wash House movement in Liverpool.
