Continued strike - Theatres
Information for Patients: Continued Industrial Action by Warrington Hospital Theatres Staff
We sincerely apologise to our patients that have been directly affected by the ongoing industrial action by having their procedures rescheduled.
If you have NOT heard from us then please attend for your procedure as normal. This affects patients undergoing planned procedures at Warrington Hospital only - Emergencies at Warrington, planned procedures at CMTC and Halton hospitals are not affected.
Planned industrial action as notified by UNITE: 24 hour stoppage from 00:001:Monday 4th September 2017, Monday 11th September 2017 and Monday 18th September 2017.
We are very disappointed that we have still not been able to resolve the ongoing dispute with a small number of our Warrington Theatre staff, despite a fifth offer being made yesterday, 31st August 2017 but we remain hopeful of finding a mutual agreeable solution and, as throughout, our offer remains on the table.
Please note that there are no patient safety issues related to this action – this is an action purely related to pay and terms & conditions.
