Easter Bank holiday and Industrial action – how to get the help you need

Help us help you to stay well. If you or a loved one are feeling unwell, make sure you use the right service

Industrial action

The Easter Bank Holiday weekend (7-10 April) will be followed by industrial action by junior doctors (11-15 April). This means that Emergency Departments (A&E) in all hospitals across south east London are likely to be much busier than usual.

Please help us to help you. If you need care over this period, please use the right service:

  • Life-threatening emergency or serious injury: call 999 or go to your nearest Emergency Department (A&E)
  • Medical attention and advice: contact your GP
  • If you cannot contact your GP: visit NHS 111 online
  • Mental health emergency: visit NHS 111 online
