The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has confirmed that no Trusts in Sussex will be taking part in strike action on Thursday 15 December and Tuesday 20 December.
Whilst all of the NHS Trusts in Sussex met the legal threshold for mandated action, the RCN confirmed last month the organisations where industrial action will take place. No NHS Trust in Sussex was on the confirmed list.
The NHS in Sussex is reassuring patients and the public that this means that normal health services will be available on both days.
NHS services are currently experiencing high levels of need, and so people are encouraged to use health care appropriately – contact the most appropriate service for your needs, make sure you attend booked appointments or let the service know if you can no longer attend, and respect health and care staff who are working to help you at this time.
