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.

Membership benefits

There are currently around 12,500 members (as at February 2011) of our Foundation Trust, all of whom share a common interest in the quality of healthcare in their local area. There are many benefits to being a member:

  • Influence the way our services are developed by being a part of the 12,500+ membership community
  • Stand for election to our Council of Governors
  • Vote in the Governor elections
  • Come along to our open days, seminars and events
  • Join any special interests groups we are setting up

Level of involvement

As a member, the level of involvement you have is entirely up to you. You could choose to do some fund raising; you could become a volunteer; attend one of the many open days or talks that we hold; or you may just want to receive regular information about the Trust. 

You might even decide you want to take on a major role in deciding the future of Liverpool Women's and stand for election to the Council of Governors, which represents all members of the Trust and meets four times a year.
