Update on industrial action by junior doctors

The BMA has announced that junior doctors will take industrial action for 48 hours, from 8am on 9 March to 8am on 11 March 2016.

As with previous junior doctors' industrial action, Poole Hospital has a robust plan to ensure the safety of our patients, with the priority to ensure the smooth running of the hospital on the proposed days of action.

Our objective is to ensure that our patients are safe at all times and that with a planned and measured approach we can minimise any disruption to our services.

Urgent and emergency care services will be available as usual, but hospitals are expected to be under additional pressure.

Where possible, people should contact their GP, seek advice from their local pharmacist, call NHS111 or consult the NHS Choices website. #

Where it is urgent or an emergency, people should call 999 or go directly to A&E.
