Doctors across the region have been taking industrial action today - for the first time in almost 40 years. It's over changes to their pensions which they argue would force them to pay more, and work for longer.
Hundreds of routine appointments and operations have been cancelled as a result of the action.
The dispute is over pensions. Four years ago doctors agreed to a new pension deal now the Government wants to change it . Doctors will have to contribute more - 14.5% of their salary and work longer - up to 68 for younger doctors.
Doctors at 44 surgeries across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire took some form of action.
- Wiltshire, 20 surgeries took part
- Swindon 6
- Gloucestershire 36
- Somerset : it's thought 24 took action
- Dorset 25
The action has also affected hospitals.
56 consultants and junior doctors at the Gloucestershire Royal and Cheltenham General Hospitals took part in the action. It resulted in 18 cancelled operations and 16 outpatients appointments being rescheduled.
The Royal United Hospital in Bath says 9 operations were postponed.
Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton was forced to reschedule 7 operations and 82 outpatients appointments.
At the Great Western Hospital in Swindon
10% of diagnostics operations were postponed.
18% of elective operations
and 2.9% of outpatient appointments.
The major hospital trusts in Bristol have refused to give specific numbers.
Nationally the Department of Health says just 8% of doctors working in the NHS in England participated in today's industrial action.
But a quarter of GP practices were affected by the action, with about 2,000 surgeries having at least one member of staff taking part.
