Strike action by junior doctors

Strike action is taking place from 7am on the 24 February to 11:59pm on the 28 February 2024.

On strike days, A&E departments and NHS 111 are likely to be extremely busy, with longer waiting times than normal. But it’s important to get medical help if you need it.

For urgent help for people aged 5 or over use 111 online. Call 111 for children under 5. Call 999 if it’s a life-threatening emergency.

The NHS will contact you if you have an appointment that needs to be changed. If you have not been contacted, attend your appointment as planned.

Make sure you have enough of any medication you need, and remember, your local pharmacist can advise on minor medical problems. You can find your nearest pharmacy at NHS.uk.

Your GP surgery will continue to be open.

To find out about planned strikes and get more advice about what to do, see information about NHS industrial action from NHS England.
