Important information relating to Junior Doctor Strike — Accrington Minor Injuries Unit temporary closure
Attendances at our Emergency Department at Royal Blackburn Hospital and Urgent Care Centre at Burnley General Hospital remain very high. Next week, on 26th and 27th April, junior doctors are taking industrial action which will include withdrawal of emergency care between 8.00am and 5.00pm on both days. This is the first time any hospital will have had to respond to a scenario of this type.
Advice to patients during industrial action 26 and 27 April, 2016
The NHS is working hard to ensure that as few patients as possible are affected by the industrial action on Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 April, but some services will need to change and some are likely to be busier than usual.
