There's no junior doctors strike in Wales, but it could still impact Welsh patients...

"Junior doctors to strike" say the headlines. That's true if you live in England, but not if you live in Wales

Doctors in Wales will go to work as normal on Tuesday and Welsh patients shouldn't have any problems caused by the strike.

Juniors in England will strike on Tuesday
