Surrey’s NHS has warned of disruption as the longest period of joint strike action in the health service’s history will conclude today.

The strike action was carried out by four different unions, involving six areas of the NHS workforce which started on Monday, October 2 and ended Thursday, October 5.  

Professor Andy Rhodes, joint chief medical officer for Surrey Heartlands Health and Care Partnership, explained: “During the last period of strike action in September, over the four day period, we rescheduled over 230 planned inpatient appointments and procedures and over 1,700 outpatients appointments – so we are seeing a significant impact each time.”
