Impact of Junior Doctor Industrial Action

Whilst today's planned junior doctor industrial action has now been called off, unfortunately we are unable to reinstate any cancelled appointments. Any cancellations will be rescheduled as soon as possible.

In the meantime, our hospitals remain extremely busy and we would ask people to think carefully about accessing the right health services. Please only come to A&E if you need urgent medical attention.


Our Emergency Department at St Peter's


Our emergency department is located at St Peter’s Hospital. Please only visit us if you are seriously ill or it is an emergency. In A&E patients with the most urgent and life threatening conditions will always be seen first.
