NHS strikes in February
Posted on 3 Feb 2023
Strikes are taking place in some parts of the NHS on 6, 7, 9, 13, 17, 20 and 22 February 2023.
During the strikes, A&E departments and 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.
GP appointments and services are not affected.
