The timetable for NHS strikes in January
Regardless of any strike action, it is essential that patients who need urgent medical care continue to seek help as normal, especially in emergency and life-threatening cases – when someone is seriously ill or injured, or their life is at risk.
The latest information we have about the NHS strike timetable can be found below with those affecting our local area in West Yorkshire highlighted.
The Royal College of Nursing has called a consecutive two-day strike at 55 hospital or community trusts across England (as well as nurse members who work for some ICBs, NHS Blood and Transplant and NHS Resolution). Across Yorkshire and the Humber we know the following services will be striking:
Yorkshire & Humber
Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust – 18 Jan / 19 Jan
Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust – 18 Jan / 19 Jan
York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – 18 Jan / 19 Jan
Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust – 18 Jan / 19 Jan
Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – 18 Jan / 19 Jan
Sheffield Childrens NHS Foundation Trust – 18 Jan / 19 Jan
NHS West Yorkshire ICB – 18 Jan / 19 Jan
Unison has planned a repeat of its 11 January ambulance staff action on this date.
Physiotherapists at up to 112 trusts in England could strike in late January, in action planned by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapist after securing strike mandates.
