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.

Our services

With an average of 24 babies and three premature babies born and cared for every day, it's not surprising that Liverpool Women's is well known for Maternity and Neonatal services. Yet did you know that we carry out 30 Gynaecology operations a day and our Hewitt Fertility Centre completes 3,500 treatment cycles of IVF every year. And that's not all. We are also specialists in Clinical Genetics and Laboratory Genetics. Research too plays a key part in ensuring we continue to develop services that directly benefit patients.

In fact everything needed to care for the health of women, babies and their families is available from Liverpool Women's either in hospital or across the community.

It's a 24-hour operation involving the work of a dedicated 1,400 strong team, made up of clinicians and support staff. Work behind the scenes by our non clinical teams including Finance, Human Resources, Operational Services, Patient Quality and Information Management and Technology, also helps to ensure that everything runs smoothly for the patients we care for.
