Industrial action in the NHS
The RCN has announced that strike action will be taking place on Thursday15 December and Tuesday 20 December and Nottinghamshire Healthcare is one of a number of NHS organisations across the country that is being affected by this industrial action.
As a Trust we respect our nursing colleagues right to strike and our priority is to ensure we continue to provide safe and good care.
Please be assured that the NHS has tried and tested plans in place to mitigate risks to patient safety and manage any disruption, including industrial action. However, we understand that you may have concerns, and we will continue to provide the best care possible on the days of the strike.
Ahead of the strike action we have been working with the RCN to determine which services will be delivered as normal, and which services need to be reduced. If we need to cancel any non-urgent appointments or reduce any services, we will inform our patients as soon as possible
Our teams are continuing to work exceptionally hard and we would like to reassure the public that despite the challenges faced, our services remain open.
