Planned industrial strike action by junior doctors - 10 February 2016 Acute hospitals in our area (Great Western Hospital NHS Foundation Trust; Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust; Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust) have plans in place to minimise disruption during the industrial strike action scheduled to take place on 10 February 2016, by junior doctors in England. Patients who are affected by the strike action will have been notified directly by their health care provider. If you have not been contacted directly, you should attend your routine health appointments as usual.
The NHS has a duty to transport patients to hospital and Wiltshire CCG fulfils this duty with the Non Emergency Patient Transport (NEPT) service, which covers the whole of Wiltshire and transports patients to the Royal United Hospital, Great Western Hospital and Salisbury Foundation Trust Hospital.
A Governing Body meeting will be held in Chippenham Town Council, High Street, Chippenham, SN15 3ER, on 22 March 2016.
“The right healthcare, for you, with you, near you”
The vision of NHS Wiltshire CCG is “To ensure the provision of a health service which is high quality, effective, clinically led and local”. The focus of delivering care to people in their own homes or as close to home as possible remains of paramount importance.
