During planned industrial action taking place on Wednesday 11th January 2023, ambulance services will continue to respond to incidents where there is a risk to life.

You should still call 999 if there’s an emergency.

For other urgent medical help visit first – to get the the most appropriate advice. 

Local pharmacists, GPs, urgent treatment, and walk-in centres are also open as usual.

We expect demand on our DHU services to increase, so it may take longer than usual for us to answer or return your call, or for you to be seen.

NHS England has published advice about what to do during the industrial action.  Find it on their website by clicking here.
