RF_2023_02_27-035.jpgJunior doctors at the Royal Free London are taking part in a strike across five days from 7am on Saturday 24 February until 11.59pm on Wednesday 28 February.

This follows a six-day strike last month, and 72 hours of industrial action in December.

As with those strikes, February's industrial action will impact all our hospitals — Barnet Hospital, Chase Farm Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital. Please be assured we are working hard to ensure we minimise disruption to services.

Emergency care and acute services will be prioritised, and patients seeking urgent treatment will be seen. However, where appropriate, please use other non-hospital services for advice and treatment during this period of industrial action, such as:

  • NHS 111: www.111.nhs.uk or call 111
  • GP practices (they will continue to be open during the strike)
  • walk-in centres
  • pharmacies

If you have an outpatient appointment or a procedure with us, you will be contacted directly if this needs to be rescheduled. Please attend as normal if you don’t hear from us.
