Junior Doctors In York Will Strike On Tuesday – Some Appointments Have Been Cancelled


Story from The Press.

York Hospital said it has rescheduled almost 100 appointments ahead of the planned junior doctor strike on Tuesday.

Junior doctors are taking part in a day of industrial action in protest against proposed Government changes to contracts which they say will leave them overworked and underpaid.

There are understood to be more than 100 junior doctors based in York and many are expected to strike from 8am on Tuesday.

However, the British Medical Association (BMA) has said junior doctors working in emergency situations – such as emergency operations, accident and emergency and intensive care – will not take part in the strike.

Patients whose appointments or procedures have been rescheduled will be contacted by the hospital. No elective operations have had to be cancelled as the hospital had planned fewer for Tuesday than usual in anticipation of a possible strike.
