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
Public urged to continue to access care if they need it despite planned industrial action.
GMB and Unison members of North West Ambulance Service plan to join strike action on Wednesday 11 January with Unison and Unite ambulance service members also planning to join further action on Monday 23 January.
GMB members at Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust also plan to join strike action on Wednesday 18 January.
Separately, the Royal College of Nursing has confirmed that members at some organisations plan to join strike action on Wednesday 18 January and Thursday 19 January. However this should not effect nurses working in Liverpool-based trusts and general practice.
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.
Emergency care and other critical services such as maternity departments will be open as usual and life-threatening calls responded to.
However, there will be fewer ambulances on the roads during days of industrial action by ambulance staff, with the NHS prioritising those with life-threatening needs.
The NHS will do everything it can to go ahead with planned procedures – especially for patients in greatest clinical need – and will contact you if your appointment needs to be rescheduled. If you have not been contacted, please attend your appointment as planned.
Local services will also 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.
