Industrial Action – Update

29th November 2019

Both Unison and RCN have advised industrial action will take place in the Southern Trust week commencing 2 December.

We will do everything we can to mitigate disruption, however it is inevitable that some services will be impacted. We apologise in advance to anyone affected.

We do not anticipate that any patient appointments will be cancelled, however if the industrial action continues, Trust staff will make direct contact with patients and clients whose service or appointment may be impacted, including transport to day centres.

If you do not hear from us it means that your service or appointment is going ahead as planned.
