Following a ballot in favour of strike action, Junior Doctors will take their first round of strike action on Monday 13th, Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th March in a bid to persuade the government to enter talks to achieve pay restoration in relation to salaries that have not kept pace with inflation. GP Trainees (Registrars) will be part of the strike action.
For Holderness Health, this means that the Registrars currently completing their GP training with us may be away from work on these dates and for any subsequent rounds of strike action.
Although trainees are considered supernumerary (i.e. are extra provision over and above the normal number of GPs we would have working on any given day), they do provide the practice with very valuable extra resource to see patients. On the strike days, we may not have access to this additional capacity and therefore the number of appointments we offer may be less than usual.
Please be patient when contacting us for an appointment over this time. We will always do our best to help get every patient to the right appointment in a timely way but there will be additional pressure on the availability of appointments.
