Physiotherapists’ union takes strike action today

People who have physiotherapy appointments at Nottingham’s hospitals today Thursday 26 January are being advised to attend their appointments – unless they are contacted to say otherwise.

Members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) are due to take part in national industrial action tomorrow over pay and retention.

The strike will run from 00.01 am to 23.59 pm and will, unfortunately, impact some patients.

A Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) NHS Trust spokesperson said: “Our focus is to maintain patient safety and our teams are working hard to ensure that we prioritise those patients needing emergency treatment.

“If you have an outpatient appointment you should attend as planned – unless we have contacted you to reschedule. Any appointments that need to be rescheduled will be done as a priority.”

People being treated in our hospitals will be informed of any impact to their care by staff on the wards.

Emergency care will still be available, and the public is advised to still attend hospital if they are seriously ill or have life-threatening injuries.

Where the situation is not life-threatening, alternative support is available through NHS111 online or by calling 111. Visit the NHS UK website for more information on when to call 999 and when to go to A&E.
