IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT about Industrial Action
Regarding the Industrial Action being taken by The Royal College of Nursing This Statement is from Dr. Stephanie Stringer at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for Renal Patients treated at all their Dialysis Units.

We appreciate that patients may be concerned about the impact of the forthcoming industrial action by the Royal College of Nursing on their haemodialysis treatment. We want to reassure our patients that they will not be affected by this because nurses working at NHS run units are not able to take part in the industrial action because haemodialysis is a lifesaving treatment and nurses working at private provider units (at UHB these are Smethwick, Great Bridge, Aston, Kings Norton, Redditch, Hereford, Woodgate Valley, Sparkhill, Worcester and Llandrindod Wells) are not taking part in the strike at all because they are not NHS staff.

Dr. Stephanie Stringer
Renal Consultant Nephrologist
Clinical Lead for Haemodialysis
