University Hospitals Bristol has confirmed they postponed 34 procedures as a result of the strike action by junior doctors.
However hospital chiefs say they their "plan is working" and they're "running all services as intended":
“As a result of our planning, we postponed 14 inpatient and 20 day case procedures. On a normal day in the middle of the week we would expect to do approximately 60 inpatient and 230 day cases.
A number of our junior doctors have exercised their right to take industrial action. However, because of our joint planning and the support from senior doctors we have been able to ensure that we have good medical cover across all our hospitals.”
The strike by junior doctors ended at 8am today (13 January) but caused disruption in hospitals across our region, cancelling procedures.
A junior doctor is a qualified doctor who is working whilst training to become a consultant or GP.
With hundreds of operations cancelled and many of the region's hospitals on 'black alert', what does the doctors' strike mean for you?
