Junior doctors will be on strike from 27 June to 2 July 2024

The NHS in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) has issued advice for patients about how to get the right care for their particular health concern during this time.

People should continue to contact the NHS straight away if they need help, including GP practices which aren’t affected by the strikes. They should also continue to attend any planned medical appointments, unless the NHS has let them know they have been rescheduled.

The best way for people to get advice is to use NHS 111, it is available 24/7 by telephone, online or can be found on the NHS App.
