Junior doctor and consultant strikes

17th September 2023
The 2 organisations that plan and deliver health and care services to local people in Surrey (Surrey Heartlands and Frimley Health and Care Partnerships) are both encouraging people to use the NHS wisely when any strikes are taking place.

Importantly though, they are asking people to continue to attend appointments as planned. You will be contacted if your appointment needs to be rescheduled.

And, if people need urgent medical advice during this strike period, it’s really important they still come forward using NHS 111 online or calling NHS 111 as a first port of call for urgent help – and in an emergency or life threatening situation people should continue to call 999.
