Some junior doctors and consultants who are members of the British Medical Association (BMA) are expected to take part in industrial action between 19-22 September.
The BMA said consultants will strike on September 19 and 20. Junior doctors will also walk out on September 20, followed by strikes on September 21 and 22.
Please choose services appropriately during industrial action and take simple steps to help ensure care is available to patients who need it most. This includes using 111 online as the first port of call for health needs, and only using 999 if it is a life-threatening emergency.
If we have not contacted you, please attend your appointment as planned. The NHS will contact you if your appointment needs to be rescheduled due to strike action.
GP practices will continue to be open during the junior doctors strike. Please continue to attend your GP and dental appointments, unless you are contacted and told otherwise.
If you need medical help or advice, or you are unsure about whether you should go to hospital, go to NHS 111 online unless it is a life-threatening emergency when you should still call 999. For more information on when to call 999 and when to go to A&E, you can visit the NHS UK website.
The NHS is also asking the public to play their part by taking simple steps during industrial action to look after themselves, loved ones and checking in on vulnerable family members and neighbours.
