Information for patients ahead of planned industrial action

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has announced that industrial action will take place at NHS trusts across England on Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February, including at University Hospital Southampton.

To help us safely manage the impact of industrial action, we are now planning what services we are able to continue with and we will be contacting patients with appointments on those two days who will be affected by this.

If you do not hear from us, please attend your procedure or appointment as planned.

Our Emergency Department is there is for patients with life threatening injury or illness. If you need medical help but it's not urgent, please consider your local pharmacy, urgent treatment centre or GP. If unsure where to get support, visit NHS 111 online who can provide advice and direct you to the best place for the care you need.

For symptoms and advice if you have a child unwell at home, visit the Healthier Together website at link or download the app.
