Our patients and service users may be aware of planned industrial action (strike) by the Royal College of Nursing taking place this week on December 15.
Staff at hospitals and NHS community services in Greater Manchester, including those run by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust , will not be included in this particular day of industrial action.
Our patients and service users are asked to come for their appointments, surgery or treatment, as planned, on this date.
A number of trade unions representing NHS staff have advised the Secretary of State that they are in dispute over the 2022/23 pay award. A number of the unions have balloted (asked their members to vote), are balloting, or have signalled their intention to ballot, their NHS members to take part in industrial action.
