Patients and Visitors.pngJunior doctors at the Royal Free London are taking part in a strike across five days from 7am on Thursday 27 June until 7am on Tuesday 2 July.

This follows a four-day strike period in February and six days of industrial action in early January.

As with those strikes, this period of industrial action will impact all our hospitals — Barnet Hospital, Chase Farm Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital. 

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: 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.
