Choose the right NHS service for you and your family

If you need medical help during planned strike action, please use NHS services wisely to make sure care is available to those who need it most.

Strike action from 7am on Friday 11 August until 7am on Tuesday 15 August will mean that NHS services will be busier than normal, and some appointments may be cancelled. Please attend your booked appointments unless you are told otherwise.

Make sure you have enough of any medication you need as pharmacies may have different opening hours or be closed. Your local pharmacist can advise on common conditions and you can find your nearest at https://www.nhs.uk/

If you have a health concern that is not life-threatening, support is available at NHS111 online or by phoning NHS 111. If it is a life-threatening emergency such as serious illness or injury, you should still call 999.
