Advice during upcoming doctors’ industrial action (19-22 September & 2-5 October 2023)

Hospital consultants and junior doctors will be taking a further round of strike action in September and October, some of which will fall on the same days.

Consultants will strike for 48 hours from Tuesday 19 September to Wednesday 20 September and then again for 72 hours from Monday 2 October to Thursday 5 October.

Junior doctors will also strike from Wednesday 20 September to Friday 22 September and then again from Monday 2 October to Thursday 5 October.

NHS trusts across Cheshire and Merseyside are set to be severely impacted - with significant service disruption highly likely.

As a result, we are expecting that a number of doctors who work at Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust will be on strike on the above dates.

To maintain patient safety, some of our services may be disrupted so that our clinical teams can prioritise our most urgent patients.

We will be contacting any patients whose appointments may be affected. If you are not contacted, please attend the hospital as normal.
