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.


Liverpool Women’s is one of only two specialist Foundation Trusts in the UK dedicated to the healthcare of women, babies and their families. We place as much emphasis on the emotional well being of patients as we do on the delivering the highest standards of clinical care.

Patient Access Policy

The Patient Access Policy sets out the Trust's policy concerning patient access and appointments. 

Standards of care

Across all our services, we aim to provide the safest and highest quality of healthcare to each and every one of the 50,000 patients we see on average each year. We are constantly developing new and better ways to care for patients through research. Our clinical and quality performance is monitored very closely and reported on year on year. In addition robust systems are in place to monitor the effectiveness of our infection prevention and control practices.

Patient welfare

From the first visit to Liverpool Women’s through to any follow-up treatment and the time you leave our care, your welfare is extremely important to us. The same applies whether you come into hospital or visit one of clinics. The team at Liverpool Women’s is multi-disciplinary and combines leading specialists.

Patient support

As well as our website areas for patients and for visitors, we provide a large amount of patient information to make sure you know everything you need before visiting one of our clinics or coming into hospital. You can always contact us directly if you have any questions or concerns.
