– Update: Postponed – Strike action planned by the RMT union for this week has now been called off –

The Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) has announced that planned industrial action will take place this month. This will impact London Underground services from the evening of Sunday 7 January until the morning of Friday 12 January. Transport for London has said that some Elizabeth Line, London Overground and DLR services may also be affected.

If the strikes go ahead, we recognise that some patients and visitors are likely to experience difficulty accessing our hospital sites.

If you have an appointment, please attend the hospital as planned – there is no need to contact us. If the strikes do go ahead, and you think you will be unable to attend, please contact our teams using the number on your appointment letter. We will do our very best to help you.

We would urge all patients and visitors to our hospitals to plan your journey in advance, and to use alternative methods of transport. The roads will also be busier, so if you are planning to drive, please allow extra time for your journey. It is also important to stress that car parking for patients and visitors is extremely limited at our hospitals.

Thank you for your support and co-operation.
