Junior Doctors in England are taking strike action from 7am Friday 11 August, until 7am Tuesday 15 August.

The British Medical Association (BMA) has also announced that consultants will be taking strike action for 48 hours from 7am on Thursday 24 August, until 7am on Saturday 26 August.

The industrial action is a national dispute between the Government and Trades Unions about terms and  conditions for doctors working in the NHS.

Junior Doctors and Consultants at Berkshire Healthcare will be participating in the strikes on their scheduled days.

The safety of our patients and staff remains our top priority. We are committed to keeping disruption to services to a minimum on these dates and we have measures in place to ensure the safety and welfare of our patients and our staff.


We will contact you directly if we need to re-schedule your appointment. However, if you have an appointment on these days, please assume this is going ahead unless you have been told otherwise.
