Between Wednesday 14th and Saturday 17th June 2023 The British Medical Association (BMA) is taking strike action at a number of NHS trusts, including Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust. The industrial action is a national dispute between the Government and Trades Unions about terms and conditions.

We are committed to keeping disruption caused by industrial action to a minimum, and have tried and tested plans in place to manage any disruption to keep people safe.
