Walk in Urine samples Coffee with Mates Online Appointments Cheshire and Merseyside residents urged to ‘give digital a go’ as part of new NHS campaign How you make a complaint about primary care services is changing on 1 July 2023 Carers Week 2023 Hypertension day – 17 May 2023 Coffee with Mates dates May – July ’23 Vaccination reminder in World Immunisation Week (24-30 April) Test of Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system at 3pm on Sunday 23rd April
The British Medical Association (BMA) has announced a 96-hour walkout of junior doctors from 7am on Tuesday, April 11th until 7am on Saturday, April 15th.
They will be joined by members of the Hospital Consultants and Specialists Association (HCSA) and dental trainees who are members of the British Dental Association.
All NHS Trusts across Cheshire and Merseyside are set to be impacted – with significant service disruption highly likely.
Almost half of all hospital doctors in the country are junior doctors – more than 50,000. A junior doctor is any medical graduate who is in further training and not yet qualified to practice independently without supervision.
You will see junior doctors working in almost every part of a busy hospital, including A&E where they might diagnose you or put you under anaesthetic, write prescriptions, support the process of admission and discharge, maintain the flow of patients through the hospital and ensure beds are available for those who need them the most.
They are also an important part of the teams for planned inpatient appointments, as well as outpatient clinics. The breadth and depth of what they do across the NHS means their absence creates further challenges.
NHS pay is a matter for the Government and trade unions.
The NHS has tried and tested plans in place to mitigate risks to patient safety and manage any disruption, including industrial action, but inevitably there will be some service disruption on strike days, with information about the impact of industrial action published nationally here.
Emergency care and other critical services such as maternity departments will be open as usual and life-threatening calls responded to. People should always call 999 or attend accident and emergency services in the event of a life or limb threatening emergency.
Local services will keep their websites and social media accounts up-to-date with information about service disruption – so please check before you travel.
Irrespective of any industrial action, please do not hesitate to come forward to access care if you need it. We’re urging people to make NHS 111 Online their first port of call if they need urgent health advice on days of strike action.
NHS 111 Online can tell you:

NHS Cheshire and Merseyside has launched a new campaign to increase awareness of online health services …
From 1 July 2023 the way members of the public make a complaint about primary care services to the commissioner is changing….
High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases the risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Around 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it.
With one in ten children not up to date with their vaccinations and at risk of becoming seriously unwell, this World Immunisation Week (24-30th April) the NHS is encouraging people to make sure they are up to date with their routine vaccinations at all life stages.
At 3pm on Sunday 23rd April there will be a test of the Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system set up to warn people across the UK if there’s a danger to life nearby.
