Information for patients: Nursing strike action on Monday 6th & Tuesday 7th February 2023

Posted 3rd February 2023

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) is again taking strike action on Monday 6th & Tuesday 7th February at hospitals across England, including The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.

We continue to work closely with the RCN and have extensive plans in place. We expect to deliver services including chemotherapy and other systemic anti-cancer therapies, radiotherapy, diagnostics, inpatient care, many outpatient consultations and urgent cancer care. (We do not provide surgery.)

Patients should continue to attend as planned unless we contact them directly to say otherwise.

Our Hotline team is available 24/7 – including the strike days – on 0800 169 5555 for anyone who is currently being treated at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre or who completed treatment in the last six weeks and who needs urgent care or advice (e.g. due to treatment side-effects). Call 999 if it is a life-threatening emergency.
