Castle Street Surgery
Junior Doctors Strike
Junior doctors are planning strike action on 26 and 27 April and the Luton and Dunstable Hospital and some GP practices will also have reduced numbers of staff.
If you become ill with a non-urgent condition and need advice, please visit NHS Choices, Health A-Z for information or go to your local pharmacist.
For more urgent conditions that you believe you can’t take care of yourself, you should contact your GP as usual, or call 111.
For minor injuries or illness (cuts, sprains, rashes and so forth) you could visit the Luton Town Centre GP Surgery and the Walk-in-Centre if you can't wait for a GP appointment. Bear in mind that these services may be busy during the strike.
Industrial action has placed considerable pressure on the NHS at a point when it is already facing significant demand and the effects of a full walkout will be felt far and wide by NHS providers – and their patients.
Patients and the wider public can also help us to ensure that the NHS continues to operate as effectively as possible during this busy period. Patients should visit www.nhs.uk/strike for local updates on additional services.
The surgery will be closed for essential staff training on Thurs 12th May 2016 between 12.30pm - 4.30pm. If you require medical assistance during this time please contact NHS 111
