Industrial action by Junior Doctors is planned from 7am on Wednesday 20th December to 7am Saturday 23rd December, and then from 7am Wednesday 3rd January to 7am Tuesday 9th January.
During these days Salisbury Hospital will be very busy, but will continue to focus on providing safe patient care. Our teams will continue to ensure patient safety and maintain critical services.
During these periods please consider alternatives such as NHS 111, your GP, local pharmacy, and out of hours, the Salisbury Walk-in Centre. If you are unsure about whether you should go to hospital you can visit NHS 111 online.
Patients should only call 999 or attend A&E if it is an urgent or life-threatening health emergency.
Regardless of the industrial action taking place, it is really important that patients who need urgent medical care continue to come forward as normal, especially in emergency and life-threatening cases and our services will be there for these people.
If people attend our A&E Department with a minor injury or concern please be patient as the wait may be longer than usual as critical cases will be prioritised.
If you have an appointment at the hospital and we have not contacted you directly, please attend your appointment as planned. The NHS will contact you if your appointment needs to be rescheduled.
