Ambulance staff strike action

Posted on December 20th, 2022

The region’s ambulance service is urging people only call 999 for life-threatening emergencies on days of strike action.

The North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) is asking the public to call 999 only in life-threatening situations on days affected by industrial action.

The GMB union, Unite and Unison have confirmed their members will take part in strike action on Wednesday 21 December 2022. GMB members will also strike on Wednesday 28 December 2022. This is in dispute with the government over pay.

Ambulances will still be available to respond, although they will be prioritised for life-threatening injuries and illnesses.

Typical emergencies include cardiac arrest, loss of consciousness, fits that aren’t stopping, breathing difficulties, severe bleeding or allergic reactions and serious head injuries.

If they require hospital treatment, patients should also consider taking alternative transport such as a taxi or getting a lift from family or friends.

Equally, they should use 111.nhs.uk their GP or local pharmacy for help with non-urgent health concerns.

NHS 111 Online can tell you:

  • Where to get help for your symptoms, if you’re not sure what to do
  • How to find general health information and advice
  • Where to get an emergency supply of your prescribed medicine
  • How to get a repeat prescription

If you are calling us about a mental health concern, please use the 24/7 mental health crisis lines available in your area. For Liverpool, the phone number is 0800 145 6570.

On the day of strike action, NWAS’s Patient Transport Service will only prioritise patients attending cancer, renal and palliative care appointments.
