Industrial action in the NHS

Multiple unions are preparing to consult, consulting or formally balloting their members on taking industrial action in the NHS. As a College we are not involved in contracts or pay discussions, and taking industrial action is a personal choice. We offer advice and links for members, including trainees and SAS doctors.

For trainees and SAS doctors

We provide practical advice on how you can continue your training during any periods of service disruption - from managing your ePortfolio, being flexible around reflections and working with training units and schools to ensure your training needs are met.
